    Default Just bought an Alfa GTV!

    Did a Top Gear - they spent £995 on one. I got mine for £900

    Looks great despite 98K's, but, sure to need a new exhaust and rear shocks as they are leaking.

    A lot of car for the money though - classic car insurance for only £230 as well as it is a second car.

    Will be a welcome change from my Focus at the weekends!

    Ha, says him with a rep mobile as his user name!

    2.0 - the best bet for a used car.

    The 3 litre has too much weight leading to a very unpredictable drive with old suspension parts.

    The 2 litre is scary enough - that is quite a beast!

    I've only owned 1 Alfa Romeo.

    A 164 3.0L Cloverleaf.

    I wish I'd never got rid of it!

    God I loved that car!

    The only problem was the number of boot lock covers I had to buy. People kept nicking 'em.

    Did I tell you that I loved that car?

    Rust Bucket and it will leak. Friend of mine just got rid of one fairly local to you. He had nothing but trouble with it.
