Few more details about the car after a bit of digging..
I bought it in 2006 at 89k miles- it's now done amost 131k miles.
It's had all the important stuff done at WAD during my ownership and by the previous owner that put most the motorway miles on it. I've found about £8-9k in receipts, the big ones listed below.
Big service in 2009 with new radiator, suspension arms, airpipe etc
Timing belt number 2 in 2011 at 121kmiles and a few other bits - bearings slave cylinder etc
October 2012 it had a big brakes overhaul - new pipes, discs and pads and reconditioned calipers.
Last year had a stainless exhaust fitted.
Whilst the car is in great condition it is definitely not a minter and there are plenty of ongoing jobs that I'm always just about to get round to.
The interior really is as close to perfect as you are going to get for a car of this age and mileage - I'm quite anal about how I've looked after it.
I've had less control over the exterior and there are plenty of stonechips and a few blemishes, but it's really not the first thing you notice when you see the car.
If I were to keep the car my 'to do' list would look a bit like this..
Polybush rear suspension - this would make the biggest difference to the car.
Replace camcover gaskets and spruce up engine bay - very slight leak making things a bit messy.
Refurb wheels - these teledials were not on when I bought the car - they're ready for a refurb now.
Aircon - needs a service.
Electric aerial fix - done it once, but this aftermarket one has decided to stay up.
Heated rear screen - has never worked - and never did in my old 2ltr GTV either - never really bothered me.
I've been pretty candid about the condition of the car, just in case any prospective buyers are interested.
If I am going to keep it - I want to make it more awesome so I will get these jobs done. Problem is (and admittedly it's a nice first world problem to have) I need to get rid of my other car (Cayman S) to afford to do them. If I keep both, I'm not sure I can lavish the attention on the GTV I want it to have.
This opens up a Porsche Cayman Vs Alfa GTV discussion - and in my mind it's pretty close. (I was going to chop in the GTV when I bought the cayman but could not bring myself to do it - knowing it would end up in some grotty auction).
Anyways, I'll stop gushing about the Alfa now - getting emotional.
