I can only agree. Wait a bit longer and order the JTD, in best case the 16v !

when we bought our alfa in may2001, we had asked for the JTD version (my dad knew about the drinking problem, you see wink ) but the dealer said that JTD will only be available in LHD. why?
because: AR UK said to alfa that alfas were supposed to be sports/sporty cars, and sporty cars werent supposed to be diesel, ever! so basically, AR UK didnt let AR (italy) produce RHD JTDs, basically.
dunno if they WILL actually produce RHD JTDs in the future; but they didnt do it for nearly 2 years now, why would they start producing them now?
just me 2p
PS: we have the 1.6 (cause of the consumption of course), it's not bad at all. wonderful sound, acceleration is quite good IMHO, but it doesnt reach top speed very fast, i only got it to 160 once, but that was because there wasnt enough road hehe wink hugo in fact reached 220 AFAIK.
cheers, good luck wink
