'01 2.0 GTV

Whato! 1st Alfa: stafford

Hi peeps, after changing jobs and loosing the Golf company car (boooo) I was looking at motors, was going to get a Celica (hmmmm) and spotted a localish '01 low millage FSH 2L GTV at what seemed like a very good price compared to the Toyota's.

I saw it and really liked it, so haggled and bought it (yaaaay). Its great!
A few jobs to do, had the air con recharged (cool) and the tracking sorted, but not long has its 60K service (early!) but in reasonably good nick. Got to upgrade the stereo though, that is probably the worst system i've ever had in a car!

I originally waant going to get a coupe unless you can drop the rear seats, hence the celica, but the GTV's looks and many cows worth of stylish leather won me around, and the price really helped cement it, it would have cost at least 800 more for a comparable Toyota.

I'm sure i'll have a few question, but this looks like a really well supported forum.
