That's "new to owning a GTV", not "an owner with a new GTV" (I wish).
Thought I'd introduce myself, just bought a nice used '99 GTV 2.0 which I'm picking up this weekend. First time I've owned a GTV although not the first time I've had a car with the excellent 2 litre t-spark engine (had a 145 as a company car several years ago).
My previous car was a Fiat Coupe 20vt. Blisteringly fast but also blisteringly expensive to keep on the road (never mention the phrase 'heater matrix' to me). If anyone wants a Coupe with 162k miles on the clock (and a fair few things needing doing to it) for a couple of hundred quid - shout out.
Looking forward to meeting some of you at events in the London/South-East area.
