Hey guys Im new!
for my first car i got a 145 boxer, which i replaced with a 145 cloverleaf a year after.
I sold that because i didnt need to drive to uni anymore, so i bought a mk3 golf gti 16v
the cloverleaf and the gti do 60 in 8secs returning 32mpg average and each cost only about £1500
I was thinkin of upping my budget 3 fold in the new year but when looking there are no cars even for £4k ish that are italian that have quicker pace but with still good mpg?
i like the 156 alfa, such as the 2.0 ts which has good mpg but its ever so slightly slower than the 145, it would be a shame to buy a car for 2 times as much when im 4 year older which is slower...
i was still considering the 156 2.0 ts sportpack 1 or 2 which claims 8.3 to 60 and 33mpg...
what would a remap (about £300 ish from monza/ autodelta/ angel) do to this car? they claim itl add 14 bhp?
any one had this done? what would it shave offthe 60 or 100 times?
(8.2 and 21 secs standard?)
anyone have any ideas?
i want an italian car again but if theres nothing thats quicker with decent mpg, i might look at a corrado vr6 which is 6.4 to 60 but stil does 29 mpg average...
any one suggest stuff thats quick but economical?
