Re: Design of the 159

I am an estate fan and have to say nothing is as good looking as an Alfa wagon in the proper colour and spec.
I may change to a 59 wagon this year but in the meantime here is the next best thing!

Me too!

We were out walking at a local country park near Bolton on Saturday. Came back to the car park, late on. My Bella was filthy but in splendid isolation in one of the central parking spaces and the young couple who'd passed us on the climb up with all the proper walking gear on were both peering through the passenger's window as we came up the last few steps and walked onto the back of the car park behind them.

You don't get that kind of warm feeling from a BMW320 or an Accord!

Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.

2008-15 New 159Ti experience: overwhelmingly positive. Reliable and fun over nearly 100k.

Re: Design of the 159

I agree I thinkt the sportwagon is the prettiest. The lines carry better off the front and over the long roof etc. The saloon seems to stop too abruptly. Its more of a stretched hatchback than an estate.

I never noticed anyone staring at a car im driving until I bought a 159, and with a nice set of wheels and a private plate it just seems finished off.

Must be black though!

Re: Design of the 159

The 159 is another great design from a design genius but you have to have 18" plus Alloys on the car ...anything smaller just does not look right IMO. Having said that my previous 156 was better fun to drive...
