Y'see, you ask a simple question and off the thread goes on a tangent. I blame Mr O personally and I believe it's because he has a green car ;)

Anyway, you just ask either of your brothers and they'll tell you what to get. The old hairy one will tell you that all Alfas are crap and the handsome one with all the intelligence and taste will tell you a 1.9 156 is what you're after. But you knew that anyway.

but with two young bairns the sportwagon will be the slightly more practical option, and don't be put off the petrol variants, I know we've already lost your brother to the dark side but you don't have to go down that path;) :D

OK, thanks for all that (I think :confused: ). I would love the sports wagon, but as yet i haven't seen one with low milage / age within my price range.

As for my hairier brother, he's handy when you need to know someone with a spanner. But his latest choice of vehicle (car is too small a word) is not my idea of sensible transport. And, as for the good looking one..........? Why would i ask myself?

Hi Fraser's brother. Welome to AO. :)

I think you should go for a 156 1.9 JTD Splurtclaggon. You just might have to wait a while for the right one to come along.

Sorted. :D

if your worried about scaring the children, probably best not to go for the 2.0 TS 147.
I'm scared of kids; or is that fatherhood; is there a difference??:confused:

Anyway, as long as i have my 2.0TS i needent worry they are scared of me too and i'm quoting you on this Lynn! i'm now thinking of my car as an effective form of contraception!:p

I reckon you lot are about as mad as a box of badgers.......I think I'll fit right in (once I get the car to subdue my rampant gealousey :mad: ). Things are looking quite encouraging at the moment. My less good looking, but already Alfa owning brother (Fraser) has sent me a rather nice 156 2.0 TS Veloce ad. which just qualifies on the top side of my budget, but with only 15K on the clock has to be a real contender (all I have to do now is hope I can get my cash sorted before it's sold and narrows my choices again). Also, thanks to Lynn and Mr O, your comments have made me re-evaluate the whole Deisel/Petrol debate and not limit myself too much. My fixation came from the car before the Multipla which was a Fiat Stilo JTD which I loved, but as the missus kept pointing out, it only had three doors (can't say it bothered mee too much, but I was a bit less active in getting our youngest in to the baby seat). :rant:
