I'm looking to buy an Alfa 147 or 156 (2nd hand), but I'm not quite sure which is the best for my needs. I need advice from experienced owners. I'm a family guy with 2 young kids, hence my current Fiat Multipla. Don't get me wrong, I can't complain about the Fiat, it's served well and done' exactly what it said on the tin'. But, it's not the most inspiring drive
My attraction to the Alfas come from a desire for a car with individuality, fun, and a bit of quality about it.
My qualdry is, should i go for a 1.9 JTD, or a 2.0 147/1.8 156? I realise i could also opt for the 2.4 156, but i feel that 150 bhp will be more than enough for me at the moment (I'll just scare the kids otherwise!). Besides, my brother (also a member) already has a 2.4 156
. I've had a wee shot of it and it's great, but he can afford the insurance better than me
Anyway, I would appreciate some feedback from 147 & 156 owners for some feedback/recomendations on the best variations.
