GT 1.9 JTD

1st time Alfa Owner


Brought my GT 1.9 JTDm 2 months ago and have loved every moment driving since! It is a real beautiful looking car and fantastic to drive

Over the Christmas and New year weeks of snow I was really careful not too hurt my new baby. After 7 years of driving I came out of this fine and then a week later, someone decided to use the back of my car as a brake The damage at first didn't look too bad, but then the boot wouldn't shut. I started feeling sick, how could this happen?!?! So I took it back to the dealership where I brought it, they took it in immediately, reviewed the damage and then gave me a Volvo S80 to drive away without even blinking.

The repair bill came in at 4100, new rear panel required, new bumper, parking senors etc. Luckily the other driver admitted fault so no problems with insurance or my pocket!!

Long story short, just got the car back, all work has been done bar getting a couple of luggage strap clips and a parcel shelf clip. It's buying the car all over again, after driving the Volvo it is great to be back in the Alfa. Don't get me wrong, the Volvo was great, it had built in Sat Nav, Bluetooth, Heated Seats but it certainly doesn't drive like my baby!!

So just to say hi to everyone and a big thank you to Lipscomb for amazing customer service and being so helpful.
