Just signed up so I thought I would just say Hi. New to Alfas, bought a '98 GTV about 7 months ago and it is such great value for money. Handles really well and sounds like a car should sound, thought it was a bit underpowered though and considered trading up to the 3.0L. recent fuel price hike has made me think twice about that. Still it looks great (mine's blue) and has a set of Alfa alloys from a (well I'm not sure actually but I got them for £100 with good tyres on). Also put a DVLA plate on it RA 00 GTV which was only £250 so you would never know its a '98 vehicle.
Did have a bit of a heart stopper this week though when it needed a new wiper motor - £280+VAT & fitting, two new suspension plates £240 a piece!!! However, managed to get some good breaker bits for £155 for the lot so it stays on the road. Everyone was telling me that Alfa parts have recently jumped in price, don't know if anybody else has experience of that.
Can anyone who runs a 3.0L GTV tell me how they handle compared to the 2.0TS & what sort of MPG do you get.
