do it do it?!!!!!!!

Hi all

i have long been an admirer of Alfas - BUT have i got the cahoonas to buy one?

40 years old next month and buying a new motor for me - not going to be family car just mine - spending between 4000 and 5500 and was thinking a 147 diesel for economy - although Alfa and diesel dont quite mix in my mind

Are they any good - can they take high mileage - will i spend my life under the bonnet(dont want to obs) this car is gonna be any good - what do i look for

let me know - i want something differnet and need advise from people in the know like your good selves!!

Hi :hi:

Welcome to AO

If its going to be just for you would you be doing lots of miles? why not go for something a little more special like a GT or Brera, or try and find a GTA.

Hello and welcome.
I would go for a Gt every time with that budget.

You'll pick up some nice GTs at the price, and dont be put off by the diesels! Try both, but the 1.9 GTDm holds its value over the JTS for a reason!
