I'm Chris, 25, from Wrexham in North Wales.
Just tonight signed on the line and put a deposit on an Alfa =
Full Alfa service history
Why the change?
I part ex'd my Subaru Impreza WRX for it, at Mangoletsi in Knutsford.
It was my 2nd impreza, had it for 3 months. Juts didn't 'click' with it. The seats weren't as adjustable as my old impreza and a bit uncomfortable, it felt 'detached' to drive with lighter steering & clutch, the suspension was too soft and rolly, and the flat 4 burble was gone, i just couldn't get on with it.. Subaru definitly made it more mainstream and bland compared my older X reg one, which was all or nothing turbo power, loud noise and rock solid handling
SO i've always wanted an Alfa with a V6, my brother had a 2.0 GTV a few years ago, which was a great (if not reliable) car.
I fell in love with the 147 GTA after a test drive...
So i'm going from Japanese functionality and precision to Italian style and flair, i hope it will be worth it! I'm prepared to dig deep (the impreza was £130 minor service inc vat!) for the noise, handling and looks
so, hello! I will post pics of the car on Friday once i've got her home
