Nero - Alfa 147 JTD Lusso

When the Croma went away broken, for about the same price we got a year older 147.

It has all the same toys, but is nicer to drive, and easier to fix. More importantly it's really Italian and not an American in disguise.

Enjoy.

Re: Nero - Alfa 147 JTD Lusso

no interior pics? surely the best part of any alfa is the inside... Is why i bought mine anyway, not that the outside of it isn't immensely pretty or anything.

Maybe I like to keep the inside just for me?

It's black cloth, dual zone climate, standard cd player.

Re: Nero - Alfa 147 JTD Lusso

I'm starting to think Fiat and Alfa diesels are not designed to be driven gently. They are designed to give you reasonable MPG while driven hard. You will get around mid 40s to early 50s driven enthusiastically.

Driven like this guy, maybe late 30s.

Re: Nero - Alfa 147 JTD Lusso

Indeed. I drive my GP hard and always get more than 45mpg over a tank. Usually low 50's.

Worst I got was a late night Bracknell to Newton Aycliffe run with 36mpg. But I was achieving average speeds that shouldn't be spoke about on a public forum

Re: Nero - Alfa 147 JTD Lusso

i think i agree with that statement, seems driving my alfa (1.9jtdm) when accelerating it don't seem to matter if you do it gently or quick the consumption is crap, so rant it upto speed flick on the cruise control and you seem to spend longer using next to no fuel than if you drive upto speed gently only to have to then slow back down again.. I just hate filling the thing up, costs a fortune to fill it, i miss my old stock sei sometimes you know.
