Hello, my name is Neil and I live in Ivybridge, Devon. I am hopefully going to fulfill a dream I have had for a long time and buy my first Alfa. I have wanted one ever since an old school teacher of mine pulled up in the staff car park in her brand new Alfasud TI.
Anyway the Alfa I really like now is the 147 2.0 Lusso, thing is I know nothing about them, I have read quite a few reviews and from what I can gather they are reliable well built cars, ( am I correct in thinking this ?)
I have a budget of approx 6k and want the best specced car I can get for this ie. Leather interior is a must. There are no Alfa dealers down this neck of the woods. The only one I found was Sidwell St motors in Exeter. From what I could gather they are no longer Alfa dealers as all there new cars were Fiats however they had quite a few used Alfas on there forecourt. I have got to say that they did not seem really interested in selling me a car even when I revealed my budget!!!!!
It was like they just could not be bothered and when I eventually managed to find a salesman that was not busy tucking into his lunchbox he just passed me onto another salesman that was allready dealing with a customer who was obviously complaining about the bad service he had recieved
. So thats means that I definately wont be buying from this lot. Any way any advice I can get from this forum will be much appreciated. Many Thanks Neil
