I'm Matt, 25 from nr Oxford and I'm currently looking at a change of car from my Civic Type R FN2... Despite my head telling me to keep the Type R, I've been lusting for an Alfa since my teens! The look, the Busso V6 and the noise it creates is just something else!
To cut a long story short, I'm currently on a huge savings push with my girlfriend so we can finally get on the property ladder. My FN2 has around £3k of finance remaining but I'm seriously considering changing this over to a 147 GTA while I have the chance to buy one before we get to the stage of buying a house in 12 - 18 months. We've had the 'chat' about cars and she fully agrees that it's probably better I get what I want now - simply as our commitments at the moment are next to none (we live in an annexe at her parents for very low rent!)
My current work commute is around 40 miles per day, however, as the girlfriend is a nurse and works shifts, I tend to use her Mini Cooper when she's on days off to save on fuel that way.
It was either an Alfa GTA or the V6 Mondeo ST220 which is slightly cheaper, but I don't feel we require a car that big! I've had a good read through threads on what to look for, but I did spot this car in particular which drew my eye, simply as it has had a recent cambelt / waterpump change as well as the Q2 diff fitted, brake upgrade etc.

Does anyone see or know anything wrong with the car above? Or should I be looking for other issues too like the clutch etc?
