Last week I hit the 60,000 mile mark (Am I the first?) and have to say she's still running sweet as a nut.
I've previously mentioned the warranty work I've had done (steering rack change to get rid of creak, and a couple of failed sensors) which considering 60k to be the equivalent of 5 years motoring I think is good going.
Was going to change her but Kwikfit had an offer on P Zeros, (30% off 4) so going to wait till they've worn down a bit. Probably start looking coming up to Christmas.
The 159 really is a fantastic car despite it's odd little faults (storage space inside and crap hifi being the main two) but I've been looking around to see if there is an alternative out there for me. I'm mainly thinking about trying to get the mpg down a bit.
Mondeo Titanium X - nice car, plenty of features but looks the same as the Passat, Citroen, etc
Any Audi - Just so common on the roads.
BMW - see Mondeo above
Mazda, Toyota, etc - Too plastic
I keep coming back to the 159's looks and style - There is nothing out there that compares, at least not in the same price bracket. Would love a 3.2 but not with fuel at 112 a litre
Anyone any ideas on what would make a suitable replacement? Don't think I'll be swayed by them but would be nice to hear some ideas.
