Astra SRi

Hi All!!!

Hi Alfa Romales and Females

Just joined the forum and wanted to say hi, but i also would like a bit of advice. I currently own an 02 Astra, which I am planning on selling soon, so I'm currently on the look out for a new car.

Now I LOVE Alfa Romeos, particularly the 147 and the 156. However, my mate from work has had a 147 tspark with a tiptronic gearbox and he had LOOOOOOOOADs of trouble with it and ended up spending extra £000's fixing the thing. This, as you can imagine, has put me off somewhat.

I am looking for a 1.6 either 147 or 156 with a manual gearbox. Is there any advice that anyone can give or anything I should look out for? My budget will probably be between £2-3k so the milage may be quite high. I know the cam belt is a biggy, but anything else? especially on the 1.6 engines.

Any help will be greatly apreciated
