I don't own and Alfa but perhaps will one day as I have always like them. The first model I recall was in the 1970s at a dealers in Central Manchester where they had an Alfetta GTV whose claim to fame was a rear mounted gearbox to improve handling. In the 1990s I liked the 145 and still do. In a recent Autotrader I spotted 2000 Alfa Romeo 145 TS 16v, yellow, 48,000 miles. Anyone think this is good value for ££2,295? Would it make reliable day to day transport. I am not mechanically minded so cannot do any maintenance myself.
