Megane 225

New newbie

Hi there,

Been admiring alfas for a wee while now and am swaying towards taking the plunge.

looking at a 147 gta in nuvello (sp?) white, all standard toys etc. 43k miles, has the pepperpot style alloys. 04 plate

just wondering a few things.

what sort of price is fair for this car?
what sort of service histort should it have?
anything inparticular that should of been done?
anything likely to be needed?

any info at all would be great guys/gals. also the alfa reliability is known for being a bit "suspect" true or false?

i am currently driving a megane 225 (reliability ha!) and wonder if its a good step up? in terms of performance, fun?

any decent, subtle mods to make? no bodykits or the like.

what are the average running costs of one?

as i said any help appreciated. oh, i am based in aberdeen, any members up this way?

Hi and welcome. I've got a sneaky feeling the Megane might have a better chassis TBH but it isn't as nice as a GTA.
