GTV and higher mileage - looking to buy
My first post after deciding to get back into Alfa's.
In my past I have had 146, 147,156, Spider, all relatively new or new,then lost my way and headed to porsche and BMW z4's.
Now I'm older and SWMBO says I can buy an older GTV for fun whilst keeping the family wagon.
Having looked through the classified etc, there are a number of cars around the £2k price, at £1500 we see those with 100k ish, and then down to around 80k at £2k
I'm not personally concern with mileage if the cars can take it ( a Porsche 993 at 185k is testament to that), but wanted to know if the 2.0TS has any known issues. I am thinking a 2001/2 with 100 - 110k miles but full history looks like a good bet at £1500, or should I go for lower mileage and pay a little more?
I will probably do 2-3k per year in it.
Any help appreciated, and look forward to contributing in the future.
Also, if there are any for sale here with recommendation that would be great.
