New owner of 159SW this week!
Actually will be ready for me to pick up tomorrow COB, but I thought I will wait till this Thu for my birthday!
What a change it will be from my 147GTA - no more frenetic rush of power & noise, no more "boy racers" hunting me down.. Just enjoying the ride & the show for now..
- 2.2 JTS 6M
- Gloss Black #601
- Black leather
- Windows tinted 50% (it get's hot here in Australia)
- Eibach Sport springs
- AR 18" Teledial (5 rings not the standard 7 - these are the light weight alloys as used by AR in touring car competition) with Pirelli P-Zero Nero (wanted Rosso, but the tyre size is unique to the market at the moment 235/45 instead of 235/40..)
- HiTech/Lambros rear silencers (SuperSprint does not offer am option yet & Raggazon is not available here locally) - still deciding to either go for just larger diameter tips, oval or a quad set-up.
Pictures will be posted this w/end if it stops raining here in Sydney!
"It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate rememberance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle." Ernest Hemingway
