Is it expensive to run ? Would be similar to the Alfetta Im guessing ?
In the main it's surprisingly cheap to run, Road Tax is the same as the Alfetta, insurance is less that half
odd though that may seem, and pootling about I get about 20 mpg, about 25 - 30 mpg on a decent run, depending on how heavy my right foot is on that day..... ( I take a perverse delight in seeing the instant mpg readout drop to less than 4 mpg !
Spares are not cheap but can be got at some discount, a bit like the Alfa independent suppliers really. I'm lucky to have a good Jag indy just down the road, very helpful with advice and support but not too cheap, you can't have everything !
To drive, well it's lovely, like stroking a little pussy cat, you can just relax and enjoy the scenery. However, start hitting the loud petal hard and it changes into, well, err, a wild Jaguar !!!
