Hello and should I buy it?
I've never owned an Alfa before but my son is mad about them and has driven them for years. He has offered me his 2010 1750 ti s/w with 42k miles for £7.5k and I am sorely tempted. He has just got a new job which involves commuting by car and is getting a German car because he says that the Alfa will "fall to bits" with the added stress that regular commuting would cause.
I have had many fragile cars over the years, TVR, Sierra Cosworth, Lotus and have always regretted parting with them for the driveability but have also been very thankful to say farewell because of the cost of running them. Would I feel the same with the Alfa?
I'm retired and don't do much mileage these days and currently drive a Disco 2, but I'm up for something exciting to drive before failing abilities leave me with a mobility scooter as the only option.
He says that his car is the peach of the bunch - is he right? Should I do it?
