    I'd love to, but have heard way too many scare stories to warrant the risk, especially as I need my car every day

    A mate of mine has owned two. An X reg 156, and a 56 reg 147 JTD. Both were great, he's no complaints about them

    I nearly bought an Alfa before the vec, but decided against it because of all the reliability stories you hear. After 2 years of ownership of my Vec it had £8500 worth of warranty work done
    Forget the stories, go for it.

    I had a 145 cloverleaf fantastic fun car till it broke in two across the middle of the car so that you could see the ground when "jumping" on a hump backed bridge ... The car had rotted badly and it was only 38 months old

    I had a 147 2.0l twinspark before the GSI, great little car with all the toys you could shake a stick at. Loved the flappy steering wheel paddle shift.

    Remember to keep a serious check on the oil, some say as often as everytime you fill up with fuel.
