  4. Someone Convince Me That Buying This Is A Bad Idea

    Alfa GTA
    Here's the story. My wife has had a 2.5 156 for about 9 years, so I'm familiar with the model. My daily driver is a 4.6 litre Land-Rover, which has suitably appaling fuel consumption, but more importantly is knackering to drive long distances. It is brilliant for towing 3 tonne trailers...

    General Motoring Discussion
    Okay, here's the sketch - currently use the Brera for work every day as I only live 8 miles away, but in the not so distant future I will be moving to about 40 miles away. This rules out a 3.2V6 4WD as my everyday transport when petrol is approaching £1.40 a litre. So, I'm looking for an...

  9. Someone convince me I don't need a V6

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I love my GTV 2.0 TS, but I'm already having thoughts about upgrading to a V6. I really want to get an idea, in people's opinions on here, what the good, the bad and the ugly (there's nothing ugly) are between the two. My plan is to drive this car until May, get it through it's MOT, and then...

  16. 2.4 JTD - Can someone convince me it's that good

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My 2.5 V6 is coming up for replacement soon. Great and quick car it is, however I have rarely seen over 20mpg. Confess I do drive it hard. I have heard much about the 2.4 JTD and like the idea of the massive torque and thus good perfromance combined with the 30mpg+ economy. Question is - is it...
