Phase Two - Battle for a (GT) Deal :)

Well folk,
just thought I'd thank everyone for advice on spec'in a GT.

Tomorrow I have arranged a visit to the Alfa Guys downtown...

Hopefully another (longer) test drive .... not just up and down the byepass

I'll be armed with the spec required - Alfa Red, Black Leather, Winter Pack, BOSE , + option Parking Sensors (still not sure if I might get a EMF one that sticks on behind the bumper @ £79) .. oh yes and 17" spokes.

ALso carrying a number of online quotes ... best one £20665 ( as speced with no park sensors) from dealdrivers.com ... seem very helpful, and guaranteed UK dealer supplied, first owner, all warranty etc.

So , have a look back here tomorrow evening, and I'll have a report on how I got on.

Re: Phase Two - Battle for a (GT) Deal :)

Well, just about to go out for the test drive, and the dealer rings me up to say... sorry... can't do it today , staff off sick - no one to hold fort while saleperson is away with me on drive.

So , can only go and talk money this afternoon...
not very please. Do Alfa want to sell cars??
Had a test drive in Honda Civic 2.2 CDTi .. a full hour on own no problems... but they knew I was looking at Alfa this afternnoon... so wouldn't strike any deal lower than MRP .

BIG>>>> SIGH>>>>>

Re: Phase Two - Battle for a (GT) Deal :)

Is it a requirement of Alfa salepersons to not want to do deals and sell their beautiful GT's ???

Offered me a mean £300 for my Almera GTi ... OK it's getting on but it's not that bad

He looked shocked when I said I had a quote with £3500 discount
.... said he's have to speak to Alfa and get back to me..

Well... it doesn't inspire confidence in the dealership.... and it's the only one close ... so am I on a loser here??
Shall I give up my dream of Alfa Ownership?

Dispondant ..

deal offered is pants compared with online dealdrivers.co.uk and smartalfa.

However... have managed to by a Alfa Red GT on Ebay

Thanks folks - off to Honda now

Re: Phase Two - Battle for a (GT) Deal :)

Was that Ilkeston Alfa on Tritton Road? They were a bit off with me.

I drove up there when i was looking for mine. Saw that they had one that i wanted on their website.

Took ages for a salesperson to finally bother with me, then seemed like it was a major deal to let me take the car out for a drive.

Not impressed. Ended up getting a better deal, and car from my local dealer.(Desira Bury)

You could try them...if you don't mind a bit of a drive. Don't give up mate.
