Our records indicate that you have not yet made your hello post!

I have joined because I am considering a 147 for a number of reasons:
  • They are cheap (second hand)
  • They look good
  • they are rarer (currently drive Focus)
  • People say they are a good drive

My doubts are:
  • Reliabilty (obviously)
  • Speed - I need good overtaking ability and be able to cruise at 90

Hello

Is there a 147 FAQ anywhere? Also is this the busiest AR forum?

You know what they say about free information

What sort of Focus do you have.....
and what sort of 147 are you looking at?

and are we cruising at 90 kph or 90 mph ..not that it would worry an Alfa Romeo

I have a 1.6 Zetec Focus and really enjoy driving it as it does A/B roads well and seems good on the motorway. I would probably go for a 2.0L 147 in the best trim level I can get. I meant 90 mph

The 1.6 Zetec has 100 / 115 bhp (if I am correct) and the 147 2.0 TS has 150 bhp: I wouldn't worry about performance
