Potential Alfa Owner

I have recently sold (today) my E46 330 convertible.
I am currently considering an older 147 5 door (max is 1500) for my around town run around to get me through the winter. I owned a 2000 2.0 156 wagon when I lived in Australia and loved it.
As a buyer of a 147 at the budget end of spectrum what should I be looking out for and looking out to avoid? If it treats me well then I'd be looking to Up The Ante and go for a newer 159 wagon in the spring.
Currently my AutoTrader search is up to 40 miles from CM1 6SS. What's wrong with the grey Selespeed?
Any help/advice would be really appreciated.

Hi guys.

Thanks for the welcome.
Sorry to say the 147 hunt did not go well and I ended up with a Mazda 3.
