Evening all

Quick hi,

Found this forum through the web! looking into buying an 147 1.6, im sure some of you will be crying out get a 2litre but the insurance will be sky high. This will be my first car (i have used works van for last year and its about time i bought myself something). Im also well aware of the things to check, like service history, cam belt changes every 36kmiles post nov 06 and 72k pre if i remember correctly. also stuff like checking the variator has been changed, if the sump is low basically walk away, tensioner, upper wishbone and rear arm bushes!

Ill post in relevant thread for me info asap! wish me luck on my journey!!

Evening and welcome.

Your in the right county if you need any work doing

Think you'll find the cam belt is 36K whatever the age, Alfa changed the interval from 72k to 36k after too many failures.
