My Alfa Romeo 147 2.0 TS Lusso

04 alfa romeo black

BY late 2011, my blue Alfa 147 was over nine years old and, despite the fact that it was still in excellent condition and drove beautifully, I reckoned it was time for a newer model.

In October 2011, I part-exchanged it at a used-car dealership in Cornwall, and took possession of a very smart opalescent black 2-litre Alfa Romeo 147. The asking price was £4,695 and I received a good trade-in allowance.

The black Alfa was lovely and I was very happy with it, but there was initially a dispute with the dealer over provision of a second key. His promise that the spare would be obtained and sent on did not materialise and I had to threaten legal action before he eventually backed down. It was all rather unnecessary and it soured what had been a good deal.
