I've pretty much decided that a Brera is not going to fit my family, so I've been looking at GTs. I'd rather have a diesel and 55 reg onwards seem to start at arounf £16000.

Looking at established internet brokers, new ones can be had for around £18500. To cut through the waffle, what's the best deal people have achieved. Did you wave an internet price at them and what sort of discount did you get?

Many thanks (and it will have to be red with a tan interior :) )

Bought a 54 reg in January last year with 23k miles on the clock, leather, winter pack (heated seats, rainsensor) and parking sensors for £16k that was the best deal at the time, so I imagine it is achievable but might take time to find the right one and probably not at an alfa dealer.

Good luck hunting !

On the flip side and to give me an idea how much dealers have got to play with...what p/x prices have ex GT owners achieved. Useful info for everyone I would imagine.

As a poor old pensioner (again mikeyw) my JTD Feb 2005 at 46K cost £12250 4 months ago, which I thought was enough. Has leather, 17's metallic and reverse sensors which I would say is about minimum spec. Some stone chips and minor marks. It is now my only car, but not in daily use.

When I was mulling up whether to go for a GT or 159 there were always loads of pre-reg GTs in main dealers that were hard to beat price-wise - just had a quick look on the Alfa UK site and this seems to still be the case.

Don't know if the £18.5k you quote was with leather but I also noticed Motorpoint list a diesel with delivery miles at £18k without.

If it were me, I'd probably wave the best internet price at a main dealer like you suggest. At least one claims to match any import/broker price so it must be worth a try, especially if you would rather buy from an Alfa specialist.

Happy hunting...

Not a GT, but when I went to my local dealer for a 147, I used interweb prices to beat them down. If you're happy to take what's in the Central Alfa stock, then you can get 8-10% off list for a good car. If you're willing to have the most unpopular colour, with the most unpopular interior, then you'll achieve more.

I was told (and I have nothing to confirm this) that the longer a car is in central Alfa stock, then the cheaper a dealer can have it for. I could have had a Creamy-gold coloured 147 for £1000 less than I paid.
