156 2.4jtd 20v Power below 3k rpm


My first post here, I'm currently driving a 530d and need an excuse to return to cars with character!!

I've just returned from a drive in a 156 2.4jtd 20v sportwagon and would welcome any comments from owners or those in the know regarding the response of the engine below 3000 rpm.

I'm not being funny but I was kind of expecting tyre shredding torque off the line but the engine basically seemed very unresponsive until it hit about 3k whereby I think its fair to say it picked its feet up a bit!
I've driven many modern diesels and although I own a 530d I wasn't expecting to feel a lack of power like this.

What I would appreciate is any comments on wether this is normal or could point towards a fault with particular car (full Alfa history to 50k miles). Hopefully having a second look tomorrow if there is anything else I could test.

Many thanks
