New Alfa GT JTDM owner
Hi, I'm Nathan from Lincolnshire.
I picked up my 2006 GT JTDM today and am totally smitten with it.
I bought it as a second car as a fun alternative to using my 2012 BMW 520d M Sport. The car is nice and straight, FSH, just had a new clutch and flywheel with 82k on the clock which it wears fairly well.
Things to report from my first drive (around 80 miles from home). The car drives like a dream, engine and gearbox appear to be well looked after and it seems to handle as well, if not a little more direct than my beemer. First gear appears a little short but it seems this is normal. Electrics all work as they should which surprised me a little.
The car could do a a good machine polish - I'm an ex detailer so that will not be an issue, a couple of small dents need pulling on the passenger door and a bit of paintwork around these admittedly small dents.
Interior is decent, theres some wear on the drivers bolster which i will sort and the passenger seat doesnt fold to gain access to the rear, but I'm hoping this can be rectified easily.
Overall I'm in love with the little dear old thing.
If anyone has any advice on what I should be keeping an eye on over the forthcoming weeks ill appreciate it.
Thanks for such a great forum, I've been reading for a few weeks whilst looking at cars and its been a good help selecting a decent example.
