After looking and searching for 7 months I've found and bought the Alfa I wanted.
I took £4,500 in fifties in a bulging envelope. On the train was everyone looking at me?!
That was Friday.
It's now Sunday and I have an '08 Black Alfa GT sat outside.
Have you looked back at the price?
The GT is not mine. I had bought a Veloce Sportwagon.
I drove mine from the showroom for 5 miles on Friday. It had an Engine System Failure ("Go to Dealer"). It's still there
I had an RAC check; it'd been though their workshop. Full of confidence I drove out through the town before booting it. And... wwmmmrrggghhhh.. brrbrrbrrbrr.. (Think that's the right spelling!)
Straight back but the showroom had shut, so two hour wait for RAC, hotel for the night and back in the morning.
And that's how I've got the GT.
But I can't wait for mine...
Now I'm off to Brands Hatch for the Touring Cars. A couple of laps? Perhaps if I wait till the end...
