Re: Goes better than a GTA

Hmmmmm....somehow I don't think it goes better than a GTA!

A twinnie is a twinnie....run of the mill and given the choice I know which one I'd choose anyday and it especially would not be a chavved up 147 with horrible wheel, bumpers, exhaust and stupid number plates!!

That GTA though...whilst not in my favorite colour combinations, it does impress with the factory fitted actions....it has every box ticked doesn't it?

Re: Goes better than a GTA

Goes better than a GTA? Oh dear, oh dear.
I suppose it might if the light reflecting off the bling alloys caused the GTA driver to crash into a tree.

Re: Goes better than a GTA

That must be one hell of a remap to give 25bhp extra. Maybe its one of those ebay resistors?

Needs its bunnet catch cleaned.

And if you can map 25 bhp into that car, you can have my job.

That 147 was Power Alfa's demonstrator car before they went out of business. I think it was remapped by Angel Tuning.

Re: Goes better than a GTA

So probably thrashed to death then

175bhp is only 20bhp up on the standard car - could probably be achieved with the right induction, exhaust and remap

No it isn't, it's 25bhp up. Both "claimed" so bearing in mind its' mileage and age, neither will be accurate.

Re: Goes better than a GTA

If Heineken made a hatchback it would be a 147 GTA. Enough said.

How the seller can say his car is better than a GTA baffles me.
