I’m looking to sell my 2005 GT Grey with tan leather, bose, winter pack ect!. LSD!!
The car has done 90K and has full service history, plus only 2 owners. I think it would benefit going to an Alfa forum member who appreciates how much an unsorted car can end up costing them. (See recent history/spend listed below bonkers I know!!.)

I was going to sell it a few months ago as we needed a bigger car. But we bought a C-MAX. It must go soon to make way for a very well sorted 916 GTV V6, when I find one :)!!!!

Do you think £3750 asking price is unrealistic, it is not a great deal more than similar cars with much less history are being advertised for. Plus being a 2005 no swirl flaps.

Below is the amount of work that the car had had done!

04/03/2016, AHM Alfa, £400
Full service with 3 hour inspection
Tailgate rattle solved.

22/06/2015, AHM Alfa, £885.86
CV boots replaced
Outer CV joints
Both rear trailing arms
rear brakes pads and discs.

05/05/15 Autolusso, £1589.68p
New Clutch, DMF tested fine.
both front lower arms
both droplinks
anti roll bar bushes
EGR blanks and delete
new powdercoated subframe
waxolyed underneath
4x new tyres Michelin pilot sports (only the best)
various seals also replaced.
MOT and wheel alignment.

25/02/15 Northants Alfa,
Major service and cambelt,water pump, tensioners. £435.62
Clutch Slave cylinder replaces £133.02

I'll give you my opinion. Without seeing any pics it seems a lot. Is it 18 inch wheels? - they seem to command a bit of a premium whether you like them or not.

For that age and price of car, I wouldn't care about garage stamps for expensive services. They would equate in my mind to the owner saying, look, here are the receipts for oil/filter/fuel filter etc ...and I did it myself. Great!

Quite a few 'nice to have' items on there and you've spared no expense, but I don't think you can recoup it in the price - unless it looks in great condition and/or the person interested is aware of some of the bits that play up.

£2k for this (2005 on 106k miles)
Alfa Romeo GT 1.9 JTD 16v 2dr

there's also a 58 reg cloverleaf for £3,400
