147 diesel wanted

Have my heart set on buying a used (04, 05, 06) 147 diesel (will be doing a lot of mileage), but seems that they're very hard to come by in Ireland. May have to go NI or UK to get one.

So just on the off-chance that any of you are thinking of selling, I would provide a good home for a well-looked after diesel 147! Drop me a line if you are. Many thanks...

There are 2 on carzone one is similar to the one Ned is advertising and is probably a nicer colour in my opinion.

Jayus Ned there's plenty of people in Ireland that do a top notch job like yourself I doubt the man would be going to england to get work done. The best place to have a look for a diesel would Octane and give Motormouth a pm he's fairly good to spot cars.

FYI there are at least two different versions of the Diesel engine, one with 120BHP (JTD/JTDM) the other with 140/150BHP (JTD (red M ?))

Read Ned's post properly Damien :HEADBANG:

Ned said he'd do any other work to the car he's selling not suggesting the OP to bring any car he buys over to get work done

Maybe but a lot of people still bring back Alfas form the UK & NI & still save money & probably end up with a higher spec car. And as already stated Diesel 147 are very rare over here, especially the 140/150 Bhp versions

I've looked at importing a diesel one myself, the VRT is 1200 for the 115bhp version or 5000 for the 120bhp version
