Hi new here although been reading for a while ,my old man had a 2000 gtv when i was a kid think it was about an 81 -82 we only ever had a beetle before that and when i came home from school one day i thought we had won the pools then i left school passed my test and had to beg to borrow the car every now and again i loved that old alfa but eventually rust did its work ...
Any how i am looking to own my first alfa think its going to be a sports wagon(love the way they look ) 1.9 16v diesel
veloce . i came to this after reading many helpfull threads and advice on here

or i might get away with a 147 5 door but either way it has to have the folding seats so one of the two ...
but cant seem to find any veloce models 147 they all seem to be 1.6 lusso ti or turismo did they do a veloce

seem to be plenty in the sportwagon .. should i hold out for the 1.9 d or is the 2ltr petrol ok dont do vast milages only around 5000 a year

thanks for any help guys ooppss is this wrong section sorry

Hello and welcome to AO.......
You will get a better response to specific models, 147 and 156, if you ask in the tech lounges.....

Some might say 5000 is quite low and you normally pay a premium to buy a diesel over petrol. Linked with the 10p/litre difference you may well be best to get a petrol. I would normally also recommend any petrol engine over a diesel on sound alone.

I still bought a diesel though
