the v6 is very nose heavy, i drive the 2.4 jtd and its not bad plenty of torque and better mpg than a v6, ts are o.k. but i'd only have the 2 litre 1.8 underpowered i think, if having a ts change the cambelts and probably the camshaft variator, they rattled like a ow'd diesel engine
By very nose heavy I assume you mean the V6 is 30kg lighter than the 2.4 diesel
The 2.4 20v is probably the best allrounder, except nothing
sounds like an Alfa V6 and for that real petrol heads can't resist them, and you have to fiddle with the diesels to get them to shift a bit, although its much cheaper to tune the diesels, and you can get the bhp higher than a std 2.5 V6
I'm a huge 156 fan, and would happily own a low powered 1.6 or 1.8 petrol or a 1.9 diesel or 2.4 diesel, or the 2.0 petrol, or even a GTA (actually especially a GTA)
I think its the dynamics of the car that make it a nice thing to use/own style, seating(leather), dash, useful boot, the steering really flatters you as you drive along, that super quick rack, holding onto the ridges on the 'wheel-non of that quarter to two stuff here - bliss.
Oh and I can pootle along steady as a 5 seater family car with the kids in it, or the M I Law, or on the way to work, when there's no one else on the road.........
