2000 Alfa Romeo 147Review
2l Twinspark Intalian Chic — With Italian chic suit design it looked good, with 150 BHP it went...OK, but the shoddy suspension made the nose hit the deck about 5 times a trip... This model had it all though, full leather recaro's, cruise control, Sat Nav, heated seats, climate control, phone built inthe dash... But having done 20,000 miles in it, I realised it was bult bu a slightly better class of monkey that fiat used and it would not make it to 50,000 miles without blowing up!!! The 1.6L engine car was actually more fun on its 16" wheels...
Pros: Looked good, had all the toys...
Cons: Didn't go as well as it looked and was all through at 22,000 miles
