My First Alfa
In the process of looking at a new car for myself. Have been driving company cars for the past few years, but last year changed jobs and lost the car. Since then we've been making do with the 1 car, a fiesta.
Have saved up a few euro and now have a budget in and around 2k to 2.5k.
I've wanted an alfa since i can remember. I've read the horror stories, but I've also read all the good things. Really I want something that is a bit of craic to drive, is a bit practical for the future (babyseats etc) and looks good.
2 questions for you all if you don't mind?
1) Will I be able to pick something up thats decent for that sort of budget. I am aware that I'm looking at something older. Am cool with that. I just would like something pretty ok that I won't have to spend lots on straight away. Over the medium term though, I'm happy enough with having to show the car a bit of TLC.
2) Can anyone recommend one the the pre-purchase services that would know about Alfas. I have a few mechanic friends, but by their own admission Alfas wouldn't be their strongest when it would come to a pre-check.
Any help or advice you could throw my way would be greatly appreciated lads/lasses.
