Just got my first Alfa, a 147 Gta

So the S2000 was for sale to help fund the mortgage deposit, was gutted to see it go but needed a cheaper car to free up the cash. Now don't get me wrong, I wasn't after anything frugal and still want something fun, I considered a tidy FN2 or ep3 but due to the age and the way depreciation is going EP3s were out of it. I've had honda after Honda so I fancied a change, I'll be financially ready for something better in a year so it should last me until then at least.

My friend has owned the car for ages and it only had 7k miles on it when he had it, it's now just rolled to 50k miles and has given no problems....yet lol!

It's a Alfa Romeo 147 GTA.

53 plate, 50k miles just had loads of bushes, drop links etc replaced, it's also had the Campbeltown just done.

3.2 V6 250 bhp, Q2 limited slip diff fitted, brembo 4 pots, LPG conversion, full Bose stereo with optional sub in boot, optional leather seats, cruise control, heated seats Etc etc
It's also got a private plate too which is nice.

I'm really liking it if I'm honest, it's not the first car I would have gone for but it was the right price, it's pretty fast and inside it's a lovely place to be in.
