Hmmm Buying a GTV V6

Hi all,

I have been driving a 147 as a second car or a year or so, my first alfa. I've well and truly been bitten by the alfa bug!

I'm considering buying an early (2000 ish) GTV 3.0 V6, I've test driven one & loved it.

Any advice would be appreciated. I've read the Spider guide which was really useful but if anyone has any other things I need to watch for please let me know.

Squeaky electric windows
Windows not sealing properly
Air bag warning light going off
Squeaky shock absorbers

I had all of the above, which are farily common on GTVs and mostly fixable. Obvious advice but take it for another drive and get a mechanic to look at it for you. Test all of the electrics and go over some sleeping policemen for the squeaking. You could get lucky and have a diamond

I loved driving my V6 so was prepared to accept some of the quirks that the old beast used to throw up at me!
