Need advice, 159,147 or Giulietta
Currently have a GTV Twin Spark and a 156 2.4.
I may be getting a company car allowance which would allow me go for one of the above with a budget of around 9k.
The car would need to last me 5 years and would be used for a 40 mile round trip to work and also client meetings which would not be more than 1 or 2 days a week I would imagine and maybe 200 miles a week on average.
I have always wanted a 159 TI sports wagon however as I would be paying this off over 5 years I am a little hesitant as its a little long in the tooth.
I sat in a Veloce Giulietta last week, was very nice but I am worried the reviews are mediocre and it doesn't have the "god that looks lovely" factor the 159 has, but its a more modern car.
Them you have the wild card the 147 Ducatti Corse which maybe an option but again its an old model and I'm not sure I would want to drive that over 5 years.
Any input welcome, especially from people that have had a 159 and Giulietta which I am sure there are some of you around!
