Longest journey?

I'm currently on a train to Glasgow to pick up a 155, the total round trip is circa 700 miles!

I was just wondering what's the furthest you gone to get an Alfa?

I went just over 100 miles to get my 156. The 147 was only about 60 though I think so the 156 wins

I'd always prefer to travel to get the right car rather than compromise just because one's for sale locally

For sure!

My brother has already said he'll get it polished up a treat! Has a machine main stealers use!
Reckons he'll tea cut and wax out any scratches as well!

He must be after a big favour

Mk 2 Focus RS

I travelled from watford to exeter to look at/buy my GTA. I done the trip twice, once to look at it then the second time to pick it up so technically, about 600 miles give or take a few. Again, that was well worth it and the drive home didn't take quite so long as it did getting there

Manchester to Dorchester,

was for wheels only, so surely further than going for a whole car?
