Cry Like A Baby Time to say goodbye to my White Alfa Zender 147

After a long and hard decision I am going to selling my beloved White Zender 147 and go to the dark side and looking for a diesel . It has done me well for the last 2 1/2 years,clock 50k during that time and taken me to Italy 3 times. What makes it special is me and my wife got married in lake Como 2 years ago and for our honeymoon we toured Italy with our Bella with not a single problem.

She has been good and whoever buy's her they will not be disappointed. So on the weekend I will be slowly reverting her back to a standard Black Alfa 147. The good thing is the wrap should help the body work keeping it in good condition.

Goodbye my beloved Bella

Now the good news is I am on a look out for another 147 but this time it's a facelift 1.9jtd multijet 16v so it ends in a good note.

Present *Alfa 159 2.4Ti SW Qtronic *Alfa GT 3.2 V6

Past *Alfa 159 2.4Ti SW *Alfa 159 1.9Ti SW *Alfa 147 JTD 16V *Alfa 147 2.0L 5 Door Lusso Vinyl Wrap Gloss White Zender 147 *Alfa 147 1.6L 3 Door Turismo

If I have time and a place I will spray it with white pearlesant if not you got to wait for a Spring 2014 thread .

Actually when I go to the darkside and join you I will need to pick your brains for tips to enhance the performance on the JTD.

I have the original bumpers still so I will put those back. I will put the full body Zender kit for sale,that side skirts,front and rear bumper and also the spoiler with the tailgate so I think it has a shorter wiper blade.
I hope it will go to a good home and as they are so rare.
