Well Happy Should I do it?

I have a facelift 156 JTD 20v which I have cared for and has VERY low miles on it 46 K. Have full service history with 17" GTA wheels + the original 16" wheels but no tyres has cam and water pump replaced , discs and pads replaced last year. I have recently spent some money replacing the drive shafts on both sides and had it serviced. I am told I should expect around 2.5-2.7 k if I sold it privately as its got really few miles by Alfamania. I am thinking of going for a Giuletta Cloverleaf. Want to know what you guys think?
Thanks a ton Jay

46k miles is very low, and you spend so much money on it, i would drive it for 3 more years

Buy a new Giulietta and it'll drop 2.5K the moment you drive it out of the showroom......

Good cars, but won't be as involving as the 156.....

Your 156 sounds fantastic. The 2.4 is, as much as I hate to say it, fantastic in that car too.

I'd hold on to it mate

An Alfa

I much prefer our old 156 2.0ts to our veloce MA Giulietta, which is why we got rid and kept the 156. Much more involving, nicer to drive etc...the G just didnt feel alfa enough.

Don't be tempted to take any silly offers for it. I'd give you 500.
