From a 159 v6 q4 sw...to a 146 1.8...verdict
So a new bathroom led me to sell my 159 v6 and buy a £400 146 with 14 service stamps. Quite a change. I've owned 5 156's and the 159 but this is my first 146. Wow from the 159 this is light, so light and great fun, also on the motorway not far off from the 3.2 v6!!!
I was lucky enough to get a 1 owner example, still with the original mats 75k on the clock. The only thing that really sucks...(from all that leg room in the 159) is the driving position, I'm 6'4" and it hurts...any tips? Can I adapt the seat?
It really runs amazing, the only niggle is slightly sticky, squeaky breaks any ideas? They're still better than the 156.
I really thought I was in for a shock but it's got so much character and I could have 12 of these for the price of my 159. Reminds me of my dad's normal Lancia Delta he had when I was a kid!
