    My car

    I picked up my used 1.9 JTD a few weeks ago, having never owned an Alfa I was a little cautious about buying one, mainly due to the rumours o reliability etc. I have previously owned a string of BMW 3 series even a Z3. When I finally went down to see a few GT’s it was a simple case of I have to have one, Stunning looks, and on test drive I was surprised how muck poke the 1.9 diesel engine had, the control and feeling from the steering wheel is great you really feel connected to the road. Having read various reports on Alfa gearboxes I have to say I realy like the 6 gears and find they are very good at both low and high speeds.

    Thee inside of the GT is something else, the styling looks great and the trim is spot on, every time you get in the car you feel comfortable and I for one can’t wait to take the GT on a long journey. The exterior is just stunning, they are poised and elegant, a real head turner but in a sophisticated way.

    I managed to bring the dealer down from £7500 to £6000 and he took £1000 on a VW Bora, which I think is great value for a GT, if you are looking for a coupe then go jump in a GT and take it for a drive.

    My car

    What can I say! I owned an Alfasud when I was 19 which went rotten but was such fun to drive that I have lusted after an Alfa ever since. I have driven Audi's for the last 9 years and have no complaints but I passed an Alfa garage one day and stopped to have a look and test drove the Gt and Brera. The GT won hands down and I bought a 2 year old with 14000 on the clock and at only £14500. I have had the car 14 months and I still smile every morning when I get in it. Internally and externally great styling,fantastic engine(a little thirsty but I guess I did not buy the 3.2 for its economy),and when you really want to go just listen to that engine! Brakes squeal a little, road humps are a menace and occassionally the electric windows are a little tempramental. All of that is irrelevant compared to the pleasure of driving it,my daughters think I am cool and the boy racers at work all want to have a go in it. I have never had as much fun driving a car!!!

    My car

    If Calsberg made cars ...For a start it looks brilliant. People actually stop and look at it ... even when drving around London where you'd think there were better cars. I often drive Newcastle to London AND BACK on 1 tank (mind you it does cost £65 to fill up these days, I doubt there is another coupe that does that. As others have said how there isnt more of these cars on the road is a mystery.... but im not complaining ... our little secret. It drives brilliant, if you dont want to feel the odd bump on country roads then buy a 4x4, this is a sports car and you want to feel what your doing. Ive never come close to losing control in all weathers contray to what some have said and on a long run I like to feel the road. For a JTD the power is brilliant, granted first gear acceleration isnt the best but 2nd, 3rd etc especially if you drop a gear to overtake is awesome. Ive also been abraod in mine (south of yorkshire!!) and gone well over a ton and theres still loads left. Mind does get a bit noisey in the cabin off the windows when hitting over 70mph but as no one else seams to mention this then perhaps its just mine .... but I dont care. Also if you expect to get a child seat or kids who are bigger than 15inches in the back then you might struggle ... having said that it does get you out of having to pick people up !! Having had mine for 2 years Im now selling it so I can get a newer model.

    My car

    I've had my GT a year and I can now comment more objectively. It is a great car to look at and own, they do draw admiring glances and you can go days before you see another one on the road. I don't think build quality it an issue an occassional creak from the dash in certain temperatures apart from that it's well built. Reliability, sorry to report a clutch slave cylinder failure that took a few days to resolve under warranty but delighted to have found a new Alfa dealer, Wilson's of Chadwell Heath who are excellent. They took the car in straight away got the parts and had it back on the road as quickly as they could, and the dealer attitude was great. I've since used them for servicing and once again you cannot fault them, at last there are now Alfa dealers raising the bar with a keener approach to selling and maintaining the marque. Running costs are fine it does 43mpg on mixed local driving and will do nearer 50mpg on a run. So it goes well, looks great is reasonably economical to run and quite spacious inside especially when you take into account the folding rear seat and hatchback design. What are you waiting for buy one, you won't be dissappointed and it's still a bit exclusive.
