Hmmm What would you do?

Allright.

I am about to switch jobs.
From a job with a company car, to one without....
The good thing is...I am out of the VW IV Golf TDI.
And I am thinking of buying me a 2nd hand.
Preferebly a...AR ofcourse

The question is:
Would you buy a second hand AR?
If so:

1) 156 SW TS
2) 156 SW V6
3) 156 SW 1.9 JTD
4) 156 SW 2.4 JTD
5) 156 SW 2.4 JTD new face
6) 147 TS
7) 147 JTD 8V
8) 147 JTD 16V


Thanx,
And please feel free to add some advice/comments etc.

Re: What would you do?

Unquestionably the 2.4JTD 20V - if you can stretch that far. There aren't many about 2nd hand yet and therefore prices are still high. The 20V engine is stunning. Pulls like a train right through the rev range and still puts a huge on my face every drive!
Other than that, the 147 JTD 16v is also a great motor.

It really depends on yoru private funds. The cars you've listed have a HUGE gap in 2nd hand pricing structures. One thing's for sure tho - they'll all make you smile!!

The JTD 16V is my baby!
Been there, done that, even got the smiling rinkles on face...

the 2.4 is my first choice too.
But is it wise?

Re: What would you do?

When the annual mileage is not too high, absolutely the V6.

The V6 is what Alfa stands for and this one is the last 'real' Alfa engine.

Re: What would you do?

Hmm. As the V6 is not an option, the 2.4 smoker - and chip it!
