just bought an alfa 147 2.0 TS in black and I love it. Bought it for £2k and was quite chuffed with that considering the trade prices going on and the relatively low mileage and full service history. Getting another service done on friday and it has also had the cambelt replaced about 5k ago so hopefully it will last me.
I was gonna plump for a diesel but after hearing the engine note on the 2.0 petrol it took me back to my calibra redtop days and I went for it. The diesel may save me a little money on fuel but they were nearly £2.5k dearer which is astonishing
I have quite a few questions about the motors as I am starting from scratch with these cars...I know nearly every part of a calibra. lol Just sold my Calibra Turbo LE so missing the speed a little but fuel is much better on the 147, plus the mutt can get in the boot
I was a bit scared of alfa's as you hear horror stories when it comes to reliability but after reading a few reviews I just went for it. So, any maintenance and must have advice will be greatly appreciated.
I have numerous questions but I'll leave them for the boards in case i get in trouble.
Anyway, I'm quite an active user on the old forums so I look forward to speaking to you all.
p.s It should be ALFAJOHN not joh!! I'll need to get in touch with the mods! lol
