Wanted: 159 SW Q4 2.4 Diesel

Hello Folks,

I have been pointed to this direction as the Gurus of the alfa forum.

I am after a 159 Sportswagon Q4 with a 2.4L Diesel lump.
It has in my view a great balance of performance with good MPG while have a great little 4WD package to suite.

However I cannot find any on the internet at all in the UK. While there are some 3.2 v6 I just dont want the road tax bill and high fuel costs after just getting rid of an Audi Q7 4.2 FSI V8.

If anyone knows of someone please let me know. I have cash waiting.

Best wishes

Nico

Best of luck!! I was after one as well (ideally I would have liked an auto version but they only made them in manual)....upshot was that I had no luck at all so now have a FWD auto...so I got half way there

Good luck with your search, they are out there but be prepared for a long wait for one to turn up. It took me at least 6 months searching to find mine (never mind the warnings not to buy the first one you see - it was the only one!) and I've only heard of two others since then. They are a rare car. I've not driven a front wheel drive 159 yet but the Q4 is brilliant! And no, it's not for sale.

I had a look on howmanyleft a while back, and it suggested that there were only something like 9 159 2.4 sw q4s registered in the country....so it's pretty rare

Well that's more than I thought there were. Mine's one of the 9 Ti's from 2008 then.

Hello All,

Thank you very much for your feedback.
Im really surprised how little actually sold given the package.

With the exception of an Audi Allroad estate there wasn't a lot of other cars that offered this sort of package especially 200+ BHP.
Ill keep looking and hoping for 1 to pop out.

Thanks as always folks!
