1998 Alfa Romeo GTV V6
Thrilling and beautiful
Clutch master and slave cylinder replaced.
Front lower control arm replaced.
Cam belt replaced, but the mechanic ran into complications, so VERY expensive.
Air con not working.
High beams went out, but an easy fix.
Electric aerial not working.
Absolute bloody ripper of a car.
Love the way it looks, the way it sounds, the way it feels. So much Italian character, you'll fall in love. Anyone who says the boot's too small or it costs too much to run, just doesn't get it.
This car is all about fun and enjoyment, and looking forward to getting in and playing with the throttle, the gear changes, the steering. It's all about the car as an object of pure enjoyment, not just as something you use for getting from A to B, where you don't DRIVE, you just operate controls.
The beautiful Italian designed interior and exterior are just lovely, and just make you love the car all the more. This car really has that very Italian philosophy that it's more important for something to be beautiful than practical, and I really like that.
Like a passionate Italian woman that's not only exciting to be with, but beautiful as well, her looks just make you love her more.
Expensive to service, but they're also cheap to buy.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
