Re: Who went from a 156 to a GT?

I went from a 147 to a Brera,

Gt never appealled to me as it's
interior is too 147ey.



(I'll probably never get a 159
a the similar reason.)

Re: Who went from a 156 to a GT?

I went from my 16 month old 2.4 MJet 20v 156 to a 1.9 JTD GT........











..........which I kept 9 months before getting my 147 GTA

Having said that, if I'd still been doing high mileage I'd still be driving the GT as I thought it was a much better car than the 156, even though it wasn't quite as quick.

I like changing timing belts and tensioners every 3 years/36k, i also like to worry about it breaking down on a long journey or a short trip to the shops, so it makes sense to get another AR

Went from a 156 to an Audi allroad then came "home" to a Brera. I did think about a GT if that helps....
