Does that mean I'd be richer if I came to live with DeePee in Ireland

Deal as long as you cover the insurance ( my quote was about €1800 last time I checked ) servicing & tyres.
We will figure out something with the fuel costs

GT Monza 1.9JTDm

Re: So who has a spare 20k to give me

I'd consider it if I wasn't being forced by work to have a 4 door car...my problem is it looks like I have to sell the GT as my car I use for work as they don't permit coupe/2dr type cars as running cars. Apparently I didn't read the fine print of my contract. Ah well, it might be just a temp thing to have to be away from the alfisti for a while but I'll be back. I should be able to keep it for a while as they are not forcing it on me right away, but at least I'll get a few more months from it and the Alfa meet in Oct could be its swansong with me. So if anyone knows anyone looking for a 07 1.9JTDm Monza, let me know. I'll probably look at the "sell 1, buy 2 car option"....



Current Car: '09 Subaru Legacy Tourer

Previous Cars:
'00 156 1.8TS Sport Pack 3 in Proteo Red
'07 GT 1.9JTDm Monza in Silver

Re: So who has a spare 20k to give me

I'd accept a 10k donation

Sorry yo hear you'll have to let the GT go Would you consider trading it for a 159 for work

the thought has crossed my mind alright but I'll try to sell privately first to get the best deal I can. I've also considered taking them up on their offer of a company car now that they have changed fleet provider and the choice is now no longer Opels/Saab.

The only downside of taking the co. car option is once you opt for it, you can't go back to car allowance at any stage.

Re: So who has a spare 20k to give me

I'll do a 8k km trip in Europe next autumn, including the Stelvio pass, the German Alpine Route, the Nürburgring (again) and the lake Balaton.
My better half already started to collect the coins - aka the V6 fund - for the petrol...
So, if you have any money left from the 20k.....
