Ok, so now that is eventually sorted out and I don`t feel quite as thick, I reckon a nice new 156 will do me untill I can afford a Brera
(not a BreraSW
). I wonder of the GTAs will go down to low price, I may even swing over to a 147 if could get a GTA for a good price.
Failing that, a 'dark-side' oiler would do as I can then chip it to death for some extra grunt. I love my V6 but I would like the economy of the oiler.
The 159 is ok but looks a little odd to my eye. Agressive front like a SZ and BMW hybrid, sides a little like a 166 (that crease line reminds me of them) and a normal 156 rear which then looks a little pudgy. I`ve never found the 156 rear all that nice, it always needs a little something else, like a spoiler. The facelift little boot flange helped, though. Its easier to say I don`t like it all that much when faced with top dollar prices, I may cahnge my mind in 3 years when the ex-warrenty ones start to appear on the market
