Picked up my new 159 today and love it! best car I have ever driven
Just one quick question, For the life of me I cant open the bonnet
I pull the switch by the drivers door then there is a sort of black plastic thing that just sort of flaps around?? I`m sure its easy, but what do I do!?
Hi there. Glad you're enjoying the 159. What kind have you bought?
My bonnet release was a bit difficult at first. Could be that yours needs some grease on the catch. That did the trick with mine. Of course you'll have to get into it first! Give the handle a pull at various angles and it should release. Regards.

Nice one You will be really happy. It's a fantastic motor. I have had mine a few weeks and it rocks!!!
Done a mixed run today. Approx 30 mile motorway with cruise set to 70 odd, and 20 miles fast twisty 'B' roads and got 36.7 MPG according to the computer. Fuel economy is not the best on this car, but that's not why you buy an Alfa
