Head Vs Heart

Just joined .... it's been 12 years since I last had an Alfa, an Atol Blue Phase 1 2.0 TS GTV. I got it as a company car but sadly had to give it back when I moved jobs six months later. After a bit of soul searching I've decided to finish some unfinished business. I'm getting another Alfa! I know they're very different cars but I'm currently stuck between getting a 1.9 JTD GT Blackline or a phase 3 2.0 JTS GTV. The Blackline because they look fantastic and I quite like diesels ... the GTV because I'm still in love with the past. It's a head versus heart thing. Thoughts?

Okay, it looks like the GTV is favourite. I've read a few posts about the 2.0 JTS not being as much fun as the 2.0 TS engine. That aside does anybody know whether a P3 GTV is a better ownership proposition against say a 2003 P2 GTV? I know decent P3's cost more, is it worth paying extra? More importantly will a P3 be more reliable?
