|My Lovely Black Alfa is for sale, Economical (50 mpg is easy) Comfortable, sexy and well equipped. I am the second owner and have kept it properly serviced (see pics) All receipts come with car. Mot until Next may, No tax, I am not using the car as I work from home now :) and we have a newer Seat as a family car. The car has a great security system built in, the external security system shown is called Ruby and does not come with the car. hehe
Lovely black leather, both seats multi adjustable. Dual zone Climate control, Dual mode Alarm, Remote Boot release, parking sensors, USB and Bluetooth built in, for phone and memory sticks through the great stereo, all controlled from the steering wheel! 87000 miles with cambelt kit fitted at around 72000 miles. (Proof with car). 4 new decent quality brand new tyres for MOT, they set the car off lovely! New Battery fitted in June (receipt with car) New Aircon compressor last November and new pipework (pipe broke) new anti roll bar bushes also fitted to near side. I think this shows I love and have maintained the car. Stamped service book, plus ALL other original books in the Alfa wallet and lost more receipts than shown. I have spent spent money to keep the car in good order, Its reliable, but an example of my spending is swapping ALL 4 tyres so they match and doing the anti roll bar bushes when only one was worn. I have looked after the car, for example the Wheel locking key still in its box, Spare wheel never removed from space, Alfa Jack in its bag and the Alfa cargo net still in place. All books plus brochure in their wallet. I have more pictures of the paperwork, the interior (taken on a sunny day!) and wheels etc if needed. Please come and look before buying if you want. Test drives see below.
About why I bought the diesel, These engines are very reliable and fitted to Vauxhall and Saab so I was happy it would be reliable as well as cheap to run and maintain., its fast and quiet, and the LUSSO spec ensures the car drives effortlessly and is comfortable to drive (not hard like Audi's etc) Tax is also pretty good for a luxury car!
The bad bits...well hardly bad.... a few very small paint chips scratches, 2 small marks (no paint damage) on drivers door (thx to local Sainsbury's car park) but they are very small indeed. Slight scuffs on a couple of wheels, again minor and the interior is great, minor mark near start button and drivers seat is shinier than other seats as its been used more (duh!) , but no tears or discolouration and the interior does look great. I like to be honest.
I would take a cheaper Older estate car in part ex, ideally with tow bar, up to say £1500 depending on what it is so I can take the dog out and my soon to be bought Enduro bike. Volvo, Saab, whatever I don't mind Even another Alfa (estate), a biggish diesel would be ideal however a decent Petrol one would be considered provided its not a silly high tax group Drop me a line with what you have. Naturally I would want proof of ownership and maintenance. I may even PX for an enduro bike 400cc plus (you can see where I am going here) The wife says I can have an off road bike and cheap car :), which makes sense as the Alfa is just sat there, I have had my backside kicked by the wife to sell it as I have been reluctant so far. She is right though, its pointless keeping it if I cant use it so I am selling it on here. The reserve is modest, I would expect a £150 deposit via pay pal within 24 hours of purchase, Not overseas buyers as I wont post it to Australia! Buyer collects of course and Cash or cleared cheque accepted as payment before I release the car. I am happy for test drives with valid proof of insurance. Naturally I would want to see any PX as well. Come and have a look, and for non Alfa owners see what the fuss is about. Clarkson, May and Hammond are right when they say you should own at least one Alfa before you die. So make it a modern reliable one :)

Oh yes it has xenon bulbs for Dip beam, the standard lights are not good on dip. Please note an estate is ideally what I need, not a slaoon. I may think about a hatchback, but I dont want to spend more tham £1500.
