Buying a GT JTD 'Monza'

Hi Alfa virgin here,

I've my eyes fixed on a GT listed as a GT JTD Monza or GT JTDm here in Ireland and I'm probably gonna look at it this weekend. I've been in contact with the seller and I was wondering what ye think about buying.
Firstly though is there a monza model? As far as I can gather Monza do Alfa tuning and there's no Monza model listed online for the GT. So I'm lost.

Here are the facts on the car:

1.9 JTD'm' - 117K miles - Registered in 2008 - One lady owner

She has all the service history (done every year & 15K done between services from what I see)
T Belt & pump done at 86K miles
New fly mass wheel and clutch just put in
There's never been a new Turbo put in
Cars been sitting since last spring
It's going for the irish version of the MOT on thurs so that should show any more faults
I haven't asked about sway bars bushings etc. yet - any advice??

She's said she had 3 GTs (not sure if this is good or bad!) and she's been very forthcoming with info and seems to have a genuine reason for selling

I think monza is just the irish version of the blackline. Search for the blackline and compare the spec.

Sound,

I asked her and she said thats what they called the Blue edition she got.
The Electric Blue.

I grabbed a 1.8 TS. I'm in Love - I can't see myself ever selling

Thanks Ralf!

When I was looking the tan was somehthing that was very important for me. I think it goes great with the wine too.

I'm gonna have to give her a proper wash and detailing, she's wearing about 320 miles of dirt in those pics.
