That second one looks really good for that price but its in Bologna and thats really far from where I'm stationed. I have to look for a car that is closer to me bacuse i have to do all the registration process with the military so I dont have to pay the Italian taxes.

That Zagato looks awsome but its out of my price range, If i had that much money I would buy it in a heartbeat

Ok. My opinion is the grey one is the best of the three.
As fgsavoia suggested, take a look to the other group and particularly to this one:

That is the website I have been looking at, the one I went to see is the one that was posted on Dec 13 that is priced at 4500 euro.
I really like the blue one that was posted on 28 jan selling for 5,800 euro it looks really clean.

I'm going to take a look at the one that was posted on 03 January that is selling for 4300 euro tomorow.

I will take a look at this one on thursday

What is the problem with the fulvia 3?

The berlinas are real sleepers because most people want the two door cars. You get great traditional Lancia engineering combined with idiosyncratic period Italian style. You might also consider the Flavia berlina. If you find a good one, you'll get instant street cred at the Cars and Coffee meets wherever you go.

They had some re-engineering to reduce production costs--none of it for the better. If you find a perfect example, I wouldn't say you ought to pass it up, but all things being equal I wouldn't bother.

And I'd completely agree with Jim that the berlinas are outstanding value for money. They're not as quick as the Coupé/Sport, but they're more solidly built.

So you think a berlina will be a good choice if i can find a good solid one?
I kind of like the style of the berlinas, its almost the same style as a alfa Giulia

you had better drive both before you connect them.... more like 2/3 the HP and with less convenience to maintain.... are you in it to impress your pals or in it for you? stick to the Fulvia but if the occasion is offerred drive the Berlina.. As i said it's your money to part with.

I like both now and cant decide, that why I'm asking questions here.
I will drive both and then I will decide wich one suits me better. The reason I was thinking about the berlina is becausae I like the style and also i was thinking it will be more prectical as a daily driver because its a 4dr
