Again some great comments here for sure..........For me its that Busso sound that will be missed. The 159, is in my opinion, much more beefed up in the suspension department, 159 looks have grown on me over that last couple of years and now I do like them as much as the 156. The 159 has a slight germanic feel when closing the doors, but once inside you know your in a car with pedigree, the steering is crisp as are all the Alfas and Lancia's. The 159 is a good replacement to the 156 in my opinion, but yes I do still appreciate the 156 and think its such a cracking car overall.
