I am new here and would like to introduce myself.
My name is Ronald and i live in Holland.
I have owned a Alfa 145 TD for the last 7 years or so.
2 weeks ago it needed to have its yearly APK checkup and it turnes out that there were several things that needed to be fixed and/or replaced.
My girlfriend and i decided to look for an new (second hand
) Alfa 147.
The garage that had my 145 in repair did not have anything i liked so i looked on the internet for an decent 147 jdi or similar . We found a nice looking one nearby and asked the garage if they have a car for us to travel to the dealer. Turned out that they didn't have any loan cars but the owner said i could use his own car and gave me his key. Turned out that he was driving a 3 year old blue Alfa 147 GTA.
To make an already long story a little shorter it turned out that the Alfa 147 we wanted to buy was not good at all. So back at the garage ,after an great and little extended drive with the GTA, we asked him if the GTA was for sale. He refused to sell because it was his personal car and never had thought about selling it anyhow untill now. Later that day he called us to ask if we where really serious about buying the GTA
Again to make an already long story short, we told him that we were serious and now after one week, and a lot of money
later, we are the new proud owners of an Alfa Romeo 147 GTA.
All original with no modifications.
Well this is my first forum post here and i hope i will make some more later. Also please excuse my English as it is not my native language.
