Alfa virgin thinking of getting a GTV
Hi, I've got about £2.5 - 3k to spend on a car and I'm seriously looking at the GTV. I can't believe how much car you seem to get for the money, and (in the right colour) it looks so much better than anything else in the same price range.
As much as I'd like the V6, I can't justify the insurance group and running costs, but just under £400 fully comp for a 16V 2.0 is better than I expected. Does anyone know what the actual mpg would be? The Parker's website says 30mpg, but official figures are usually a bit hopeful?
I've found a local Alfa specialist workshop, I'm just a bit worried about how often I'll need to use it, and how many kidneys I'll have to sell to pay for it?
I've not gone to look at one yet as I need to wait a couple of weeks for the all important cash, but in the meantime I'm looking for any info I can get on what I need to be aware of when buying and owning a GTV.
Any tips or advice would be much appreciated. Also, what do others think of the GTV now it's a bit dated compared to the GT and the gorgeous Brera.
Great site by the way.
