I'm looking to buy a car at the moment and narrowed it down to three choices,
Alfa GT, BMW320CD or BMW 330CD.
I drove this car ( link ) Claude Holman Cars
today and loved most of the experience, the limited visibility and the turning circle might take some time to get used to, however the gorgeous looks and the more than adequate TD engine make up for that.
I'm in two minds now if I should take the plunge and part with my cash for the Alfa as a nicely specced BMW 320 CD with less mileage ( bout £1500 dearer ) most certainly be the safer option, having owned three 3-series 6 pots before.
Giving the mileage of the Alfa and having read the Waterpump thread, should I insist on replacing said parts before I buy the car ?
how do I check the Waterpump is OK ?
Would these parts be due to be changed at the next service anyway ?
Sorry for all the questions, I'm just unsure what car to go for
I'll trawl this forum some more and maybe I get some pointers...
