keep the v6 or get GTA?
I've caught the v6 bug and for the last year have been happily zooming about in a black 1998 V6 Veloce complete with Tan leather and wooden wheel.
However, the lure of the 3.2 V6 is creeping up on me....and I've seen a GTA Sportwagon that looks tempting....
On the one hand I think I prefer the natural lines and wood of the original 1998 Veloce - the side skirts and oversize front/rear bumpers on the GTA are not so pretty in my eyes.
On the other hand the V6 spent some years by the seaside with its previous owner and so rust is threatening in the usual places...holes are appearing boo hoo.
To those who have had both...What do you think?.... is the performance of the GTA really worth the extra money and loss of that classic beauty? Should I be happy with the 2.5 V6 and lovingly attack its rust problems?
Please no clever clogs tell me to keep the 2.5 and buy the GTA. Keeping the V6 will earn bonus points with my woman - spending out on GTA will involve a period of conflict - and owning both will extend the conflict indefinately!
Yours in subjective emotional turmoil,
