Wave what to look for in a 33??

Hi. Im not yet an Alfa owner but after a lot of reading online ive decided to get myself a 33 16v or QV. My brother drove a 33 1.5ie and this was the first car i drove at 16. Ive been driving some fairly boring cars (diesel mondeo and audi 80) since and feel like its time i get something with a bit more soul and passion, things that the 33 definately has.
I'm asking some of the Alfista out there what i should be looking for in a second hand 33... ie, how much should i be willing to pay for a 93/94 16v or QV?
Should I go straight for a Perm 4? Are they really any better than a QV?
And how do i know if the car is a good buy and not been driven to an inch of its life?
Any advice and help would be greatly apprieciated. Thanks!

If you can, try to avoid 33's with grunchy 2nd gear
and the newer the cambelts the better....


That's all... Welcome to AO

Hi predator,

Our welcome wagon has been a bit slack lately (with the exception of Pasi ). Glad to have you here. Make yourself at home in the 33 Lounge.
