1999 Alfa GTV TS For Sale
Twin Spark P2 CF2 in Grigio Eclisse with a black momo interior.
1999, 100k miles (12,000 covered in my ownership), MOT extended to October 2020.
I spent a long time looking for a clean one in this colour scheme and have owned it for 5 yrs, sparing no expense on maintenance with the intention of keeping it a long time; sale now due to current economic outlook. Always garaged and totally reliable aside from two minor indiscretions which were quickly fixed (throttle cable & electrics).
Work done - Many parts replaced as soon as I bought it, some works precautionary and not strictly necessary: new electric radio aerial, under bonnet trim, scuttle trim, fuse box cover, gear knob, spare wheel with new cover, door seal rubber, cubby box lid. Cam belt & variator changed (twice over the last five years), new cam (worn lobe), new clutch & release bearing, battery (twice), new front bumper fitted & painted (original had an aftermarket spoiler bonded on but I prefer the original look, still have the other as a spare), bonnet struts. All servicing carried out by local specialist Gonnella Brothers in SE London.
Upgrades - 17” teledials refinished in dark anthracite by Lepsons with new Toyo tyres (set me back £1,200 all in and I also have the original pepperpots inc in sale, together with a spare front bumper), Kenwood & Morel speakers (CD stereo had already been replaced), Cybox exhaust with sports cat (a better fit than the original and sounds lively without being too loud), stage 1 engine remap by Autodelta (stronger response in the mid ranges).
Bad points - only supplied with the original red key so I had a duplicate cut without alarm fob, some minor scuffs on the bodywork which have never really bothered me, temp gauge read 0 for four years then decided to read max all the time (no fault with the gauge or sender and cooling system works fine), engine management light occasionally comes on then goes out again (been doing that for two years but no fault found), air-con probably doesn’t work (never bother testing it but assume it doesn’t), slight wear on 3rd gear synchro (always been like that and not an uncommon issue). MOT 2018 advisories slight corrosion rear inner sills, MOT 2019 no advisories.
There will be cheaper ones around but clean Twinnies like this are getting rare now, this needs to go to an enthusiast who will look after it as I have done.
