New Gt 1.9, traded from 1.4 Fiat 500
I just collected my new car, well new to me, a 2006 25,000 GT 1.9 JTDM (the lower tax one)
Just thought I would say hi, my previous car was a Fiat 500 1.4 lounge, so some may know me from the fiat 500 forum.
First impressions? Well, I had to get the front tyres balanced as there was a slight vibration at 80, very slight wind noise from the drivers door, which I didnt notice on the test drive and isnt evident at 70. Oh and a slightly heavy clutch, but it seems that is a common issue.
Other than that, seems good so far, certainly quieter than the 500 and only used 1/8 of a tank for 100 miles, the 500 would be nearly half empty at that point, good mpg but tiny fuel tank.
This is my fourth Alfa (Am I mad?) previously I had 3 156's, 1.8, 1.8 and 1.6 sportwagon. I considered a Brera but a little too much money and also put off by the tyre issue and the fact it is a little wide for our work parking spaces.
Currently Alfa GT 1.9
Previously 1.4 Fiat 500
Before that 3 156's amongst 30+ others
