Alfa Romeo knowledge required....URGENT

Hey everyone

I posted a thread a few days ago regarding my potential purchase of an Alfa 159 1.9JTD Lusso. Its a 2007 model. I was planning on getting an AA check done as I live a few hundred miles away (near Glasgow) from the current owner and have absolutely no knowledge of cars in general never mind Alfas...apart from the much appreciated advice from members on this forum. I was basically wondering if there were any persons in the area that could look at the car for me in regard to the mechanical/technical angle or even meet me there and give me their honest and frank opinion. The car is based in the Telford Shropshire area. In general the AA were gonna charge me almost £200for a service that some have reported as mediocre. So I'm stuck in a catch 22 situation so if anyone can help it would be very much appreciated. Needing it done ASAP too..

Thanks in advance

Alex

I'm in Telford and happy to have a look at it for you - 23 years experience of motor trade so reasonably knowledgeable

Aye happy to take a look if needs.

Driven a 1.9 JTDM for 3 years, so fully aware of pitfalls.

Oh ok, sorry to hear that, if its the one I am thinking of it belongs to a colleague of mine at work, he put it up for sale and then told me his wife was going to use it but I notice its back up for sale on Autotrader without the private plate.... ending EYL I think.
