thought I would introduce myself.
I joined this site to find out more about the 147gta.
I'm seriously considering getting one towards the end of the summer as a weekend and evening toy, on limited milleage. I'm only 21 but have had quotes of about £1200 online so its do-able. I was paying that on my old clio sport.
The other contender is a Clio 3.0 V6, but that is group 20 so I'm not sure I can afford it. Plus I think it would be a nightmare to service or repair.
The alfa seems to be the perfect balance of a conventional layout (an engine where you would expect it to be), v6 soundtrack and headturning looks.
I don't suppose either are 100% reliable but tbh I know people with subarus and evo's who don't say kind things about them in terms of reliablity so I doubt there is much in it really. I've had performance cars before. I no they arn't cheap but how can you put a price of fun?
