Newbie starting the search for a GT
I'm Mark and I'm from Bristol. My main car is a modified MR2 Turbo TBar. I've had a shed of a mondeo as a second car for a couple of years but after an RTA it had to be scrapped. Hence I've decided I want a second car that's actually nice but still has a decent enough boot and can seat 4 people, so an Alfa Romeo GT seems to suit...
I'm after the following:
- GT 1.9JTD
- Air Conditioning
- Cruise Control
- Preferably not black or silver
AFAIK, almost everything I've mentioned is standard, which just leaves me picking the right paint / trim combination. My budget tops out at £5k, which I know puts me at the older, higher mileage end of the market, but I've liked these cars since they first came out and when I realised they could be in budget I quickly dropped my thoughts of getting an E46 BMW 320D Touring and decided I wanted Alfa!
Unfortunately what appeared to be the perfect car has just been sold 15miles from me. Dark blue metallic paintwork with the wonderful contrast of cinnamon leather trim: 2005 ALFA ROMEO GT 1.9 JTD 16V M-JET 2DR - FULL LTHR
Anyway, here's the required introductory "post pics" moment... obviously not an Alfa, but this is my little toy and currently my daily driver too:
