Very nice - I'm happy enough with my 1.9JTDm ti SW (rolls off the tongue, doesn't it?) although it feels a bit flat after the GTV V6 which it replaced.
I'd probably have gone for Carbonio Black too, but the dealer had an Alfa Red one in stock that he was able to do a deal on, so that's what I got. Wouldn't have been my first choice, there's an awful lot
of red, but after 2 months and 1700-odd miles I've no complaints about the car itself.
Couple of odd things, though - we've got a red 147 TI too, and I always thought the 17" wheels looked a bit big. Parked beside the 159, the 147 looks to be on castors.
Also the colour - the 147 looks a nice deep red compared to a friend's slightly orangey-red VW, but beside the 159 it's the 147 that has an orange tinge.
Anyway, congratulations - hope you enjoy it.
