V6 purchase dilemma
As a recent Giulietta QV Launch Edition purchaser - yes the matte grey one - the last thing I thought I'd be doing was wanting to buy a V6 GTV, but I do and I've always wanted one. A Phase 2 or the sublimely beautiful Phase 3.
There are two choices on here and on Pistonheads that I'm interested in and I need you good people to help me choose. It will be driven simply for pleasure at the weekends and is a purely emotional decision - I have no practical need for it.
Choice 1 - the Proteo Red, Phase 2, 125,000 miles, great pedigree, 1999, £3500
Choice 2 - the Black with Tan, Phase 3, 107,000 miles, good last two owners, 2004, £4100
What to do? I am drawn to the Phase 3 simply as a piece of art to own, but have heard that the Phase 2 is a more engaging drive.
Any views on these cars? Anyone know them? I'm desperately keen to keep the cost of ownership down, but know that good examples will only get more expensive to buy.
