Volvo V40

Hello - Potential GT V6 Owner

Hello all,

Looking to get into the world of Alfa ownership, specifically the GT 3.2 V6.

Over the last few years I have been driving a Volvo V40 T4 (great car for family; fast, reliable, big and safe but a little dull) and the wife's Mitsubishi Outlander. Kids are a little older now so 'allowed' to get back into sports cars but they must have 4 seats and boot for pram! Have been looking at a few recently and may well be tempted to dip my toe in the next few months.

I have previously had a fiat coupe 'plus' so assume very similar temperament; electrics, rattles, reliability etc?

Not that I have issue with that - kind of gives the car more character!

I'm looking for a dark grey (not sure of colour 'name') one with red interior (is this the most desirable combo out of interest?), with 'Q2', parking sensors and sub 80k miles.

Upgrade plans are to lower the car (not coilovers), upgrade the exhaust and air filter as well as remap. Also like the look of 18' wheels but hear the ride is a disgrace on these!

Anyway, would love some pointers or advice. Is there a buyers guide on here? (apologies if really simple to find!!)

Best regards
