  4. 156 / 147 GTA Buyers Guide

    Alfa GTA
    Basically this is what I sent to Evo for their Buyers Guide. I'm not saying its definative or indeed 100% correct. More like my opinion of the Cars. Its biased towards the GTA but most of what’s said here could apply to 156 V6’s too. I'm Happy to amend it in light of your comments. Bonnet...

An ideal combo would be black, red or tan leather with...

  16. GTV buyers guide - Sunday Times

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    There a 1-page guide to buying a second hand GTV in the 'Driving' supplement of the Sunday Times today. It's a very good write up - unbiased and quite accurate. It also says that only 6,000 GTV has been sold in the UK, making it rarer than a Audi TT or Boxster. ;) That's one quote to remember!!!
