206 gti180

Hello people!

Hi all, i currently own a 206 gti180 which i am sick to the back teeth of! A word of warning to everyone, DONT OWN A FRENCH CAR, THEY SUCK ASS!

Anyway less of that! Im after a 147 GTA. Was thinking a Golf R32 but they are a bit to pricey for me at the mo! 147 GTA is the next best thing though! They look the NUTS!

Now ive heard that alfas are not that reliable, is this the case or has the situation changed over the past few years. Also been told that an alfa V6 engine is one of the best sounding engines there is!!

What are peoples honest opinions on this car and the reliability factor!

Thanks

Re: Hello people!

Don't know about the 147 but the V6 is a honey.
Been a bit unlucky with the first one but like all cars look after them and they should be OK
As soon as I get behind the wheel I feel glad to be alive
You either get the bug or not Good luck hope you find a goodun

Well I've only owned my year old GTA for a couple of months but the grin hasn't left my face since I got it.

I did have a slight paint problem which was rectified quickly by my dealer and I'm really pleased with the results.

Mechanically the car has been faultless so far.

If you do go for one and it's an earlier model make sure it's got the 330mm brake upgrade.

If you get a GTA, you will forget all about the German cars
