Re: Anyone got their MY08 159 yet?
Well it is not strictly an MY08 as it does not have the interior or other changes... BUT today I picked up my new Alfa from Gulson Motors in Canberra. It is a 159 2.4 JTDM manual, Grigio Titanio, 18" wire-spoked wheels, Pirelli PZero Nero tyres. I ordered it in March and there was very little choice available so I guess the vehicle had already been built by then. From other things the dealer has said I believe that the first true MY08 cars will arrive in Oz in August.
In a couple of hours' driving the windscreen has not developed a maddening squeak, nothing has fallen off and the brakes have not failed. And my Ericsson K850i phone appears to have connected to the Bluetooth without any problems.
After lurking on this forum for about eight months and asking various dumb questions while driving a Ford XR6, I can now be a full participant! Many thanks to the forum members who have helped me with this decision, especially the Australian ones.
PS: edit - I recall some lack of clarity on an earlier thread about whether the Australian 159s were 200 or 210 bhp. It's definitely 210 according to the engine code
Now let's see if I can include some pictures:
