916 GTV TB

916 gtv 2.0 v6 tb

I'm Tom,
From Belgium
30years old

Just bought the wife a GTV TB, as she is a true alfisti, she had a 75 & 33 in the past.

I'm more into japanese and german performance cars.
our current garage includes
lhd evo 6 rs2 (very rare)
passat b3 gt g60 syncro as a trackday beater (also very rare)
bmw 318ti (drift thingy)
2012 audi a3 2.0tdi daily cruiser

Not a big fan of Alfa romeo myself but the gtv may turn me around, the last alfa 33 was just a nightmare on brakes/handling.

Got it home yesterday and was amazed by the ride comfort and it seems to be pretty nippy aswell

only downside is the oil sump clearance on Belgian roads/speedbumps,

GTV has 140K kilometers on the clock
it was imported from italy in 2005 and had one previous owner in Belgium, an Italian Guy

only modifications done to it are a full ragazzon exhaust.

things that needs to be done

full service, will be using fuchs titan pro S 5w40 oil
gearbox oil , if someone can give me the oil spec that would be great.
seems to be losing a small amount of oil from the distributor ?
spark plugs
new leads
oil sump guard!!! can i buy one ? Else i will need to fabricate one.

car will be used as a daily driver and perhaps a trackday once a year

916 GTV TB

a decent TB example can be found around de 3000-4000 euro range. so they are pretty cheap imo.
But the TB is quiet rare, most of the time its 2.0 or the 1.8 Tspark's for sale which are around de 2000 euro.
because of the very strong "MOT" check we have to go through every year almost car cars on the road are in perfect mechanical order.

3.0 V6 is not popular in Belgium because of the big increase of yearly tax for 2000cc and above.

in the Netherlands its a whole different story, they have an abundance of alfa romeo, which results in even more cheaper prices.
