147 GTA

On the hunt for a 147 GTA - help required.

Hello all.

As the title suggests. I'm just after abit of advice about the current GTA's for sale on PH/AT/eBay..

Is there any known ones to stay clear from? Are known within the forum at all?

Really like the cosmos blue one which is up for 5750 on PH but ideally id like the White or red colour. I'd go for the White one on ph but it's not FSH which puts me right off, plus it doesn't have Q2 or 330's..

Any help will be much appreciated!

Thanks in advance, Piers.

I havent seen any of these cars but a service history is not worth anything unless there are receipts. Check the cars without history and ask if they have paperwork or receipts to cover the "missed" services.

+1

My wife's dead OCD about getting her 147 serviced properly "to keep up the history" but keeps forgetting to take the service book along, and inevitably has to go back with it later

Seriously though, I'd rather have a pile of receipts for parts and work done, and a chat with the owner, than a book with a few stamps in it, after all, stamps can be bought or just plain faked.

Receipts will also hint at problems that won't be in the service book...
