Got my 159 at last!!
After years of wanting but never getting an Alfa, on Sat 27th I collected my Alfa 159 from Guest in Solihull. I had to wait until today (Sun) to get my first decent drive as I was staying overnight in solihull at a 'do'.
Today drove 174 miles home to Sussex, mixed motorway dual carriageway (A34) and 40 miles of single track A272 to home, I didnt want to get out of the car!
Some details, its a 159 SW 1.9 JTDM in Alfa red (proper colour) with tan leather. Its a 2008 08 plate car with 15k history.
There was 4 adults in the car, plus luggage and I set cruise at just under 80 on the M40 and the best bits of the A34, on the A272 I enjoyed the drive taking off the cruise, the average gradually climbed and has settled at an average of 43mpg, more on fuel consumption in a week or so when I can do a brim to brim comparison to my previous SAAB 93 1.9Tid.
