Thumbs Up Hello from Cheshire! (possible new 147/GT JTDm 16v owner)


I'm seriously considering getting a facelift 147 JTDm 16v Lusso (3dr) or possibly a GT in the next year or so.

Budget is about 4k ish.

Will be remapped and get a panel filter, stainless steel exhaust and upgraded dmf/clutch at some point - that's the plan anyway.

I currently have a 1999 (V) Rover 400 iXLD - turbo intercooled diesel, standard 105hp, but has a tuning box, decat, big cone filter and had the boost turned up so is now about 135hp.

I was considering getting a Golf TDI 150, but they are expensive and pretty poorly equipped on the whole, so this lead me to the idea of getting an Alfa.

Also, I did consider an Astra with the same engine, they are about the same sort of money, but given the choice between a Vauxhall and an Alfa - it's a no brainer!?

I have a few questions so will start a thread in the technical area shortly.
