Back to Alfa

Hi All,

after 5 years of happy Alfa ownership, 3 phase II GTV's (2.0 V6 Turbo, 2.0TS & 3.0) and a 156 Sportwagon, I decided to go for something a bit different, a 4.7 V8 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

While I love the car, the acceleration, 7 and a bit seconds 0 - 60 and effortless cruising at 120, the fuel consumption is horrendous. If I was the kind of person who can sit on the autobahn at 70mph it would be ok, but I'm not!

So now looking for a GT, I've loved the look of them since they came out and now it's time to return to the fold. Ideally I want a JTDm with nav and tan leather, red, blue or black.

My first GTV was red with tan and looked fantastic up to the day that some idiot T-boned me!!

Thanks to all who post here, the amount of information is staggering. I am certainly learning a lot about the GT already.

Welcome to AO and good luck with your search for a GT, you might want to drive a 3.2 before you settle on JTDm

Don't think I dare, after the V6 GTV's I know I would be hooked straight away.
