<strong>Hello Gunny (isn't that the weird fellow from the movie TITAN AE? Great movie by the way),
I drive an Alfa 147 JTD now since Januari 2002 and I have to say I LOVE IT! Power is very good, torque is FANTASTIC. The engine sound is great also. It's not like the VW-diesels. It's got that typical diesel sound, but it's got also something sporty in it (especially if you rev up to 4000...).
With normal driving (a lot of highway 130-140 km/h) I do 950 - 1000 km's on one tank EASILY! I once had my radius reader on 1350 km's! I drove constantly 100 km/h which isn't THAT slow wink
The car is also very quiet at high speeds on the highway (also due to diesel engine making less rpm's of course then petrol engine).
If I have to state the pros and the cons, I have to say that the whole package is one BIG PRO! The engine is a jewel, very strong and also quiet for a diesel engine (maybe it could have less vibrations, but then again I'm just very very very spoiled).
What I also love is to overtake without having to change down.....just apply a little bit of gas (ehhh diesel
) and BRRRRMMM...of you go!
I testdrove the 1.6 TS 120 BHP and the 1.9 JTD. The JTD convinced me in all aspects. This was the engine I had to take.
Still I'd love to have had the Selespeed. I saw the movie that Stef took with his car, running down the highway and changing gear with his hands on the steering wheel and the engine revving up.....I got shivers running down my spine!
I think my next car will be an Alfa 157 Sport Wagon 2.4 JTD with Selespeed.....
Sport Wagon, because I think it's the most sexy wagon of the world (and by that time, my wifes wish of having kids will be granted then wink ). TMHO it's the only wagon that looks sexy without roofrails. All other wagons are ugly, until you put some roofrails on them. I find the Sport Wagon becoming ugly if it's got roof rails. Anyway.
The Selespeed, because it's a fantastic piece of equipment that gives just that little bit more....
One problem though: The Alfa 157 hasn't been released yet (your kiddin'?) and Alfa has to get the Selespeed gearbox available in combination with diesel engines (I'll deal about the money issue then wink )!
