Newbie looking to buy 159 !!
ever since i learnt to drive ive always wanted an alfa romeo, and with the recent alfas having the old Ti pedigree ive been looking to buy one.
Ive recently come across a 159 1.9 jtdm ti in RED, beautiful, it has 63k and is on a 58 plate.it also a Qtronic and this works out perfect for me as i wanted to buy an automatic next.
However it is a cat d damaged vehicle with minor damage to front bumper, ns headlight, bonnet and rear bumper. the damage is minimal with only these parts needing replacing
most people i know are put off form buying salvage cars but the past 3 cars i have bought myself repared and driven with no problems at all and sold at a profit!
The help i need is the value of the car, i will be able to have it back on the road (as long as there are no hiccups) for approx £5000,
does this seem like a fair price for a cat d 159?
the normal ones retail for around 8-9k with this mileage and spec and that is the manuals, qtronics are harder to come by
i have read through the various common faults that goes with these cards (steering rack, rattles) i wanted to know if anyone else has any other input?
ps, i think this may be in the wrong section - i ddint know whether to post in newbie or tech help!
