got my 147

finally picked up my new 147 JTD M-jet yesterday and i have to say it is better than i thought it would be!!! traded in my gold GTTDI against and after only a trip up the M1 i would say the 147 is better than the Golf.. less road noise which suprised me since i've got 17" alloys , no squeaks which the golf had(and was less than a year old).
Got it in red with black leather interior , comfort pack and winter pack, looks hot!!!
Dont know how much people know of them but i bought the car from smart alfa and though the car took a little longer to come than i first anticipated i thought they were pretty good in the end .. car was all covered over and everything explained! I say in the end as i was nervous of buying from someone whom i have never seen or visited!
I would recommend them to anyone buying an alfa.

Re: got my 147

Well done mate! There is no hope for you now, you have been got, Alfa ownership is not a choice it is a condition!

My 156 is the same, so refined & quiet, nearly too quiet! Mind you, Old K82 was the same, cept the noise was very stereo above 4000 (and 100). Keeping it below 120 on the motorway was an effort!

Welcome to AO anyway

Re: got my 147

very much so.. i know its only early days.. 280 miles on clock.. but the build quality seems better than the VW and not a rattle or squeek to be found, i cant believe i was so worried about getting an alfa. fuel economy not near that of the golf but i think it will improve was i put a few k on the engine ( and be less heavy on the accelarotor!)
