With which engine (i'm thinking of petrol although the 2.4 Diesel does have 200 BHP) and in which colour?
My 156 SW is silver so I need a colour change.......
I came from a 156 2.5 V6 to the 159 2.4JTDm - my first venture on the 'dark side' and after a few initial doubts about using the 'devil's brew', I'm now loving it,
. It may not have that spine-tingling V6 wail but when you wind it up, it's got a business-like growl to it -a bit like the Audi (sorry, swear word
) Quattro of old,
. I do quite a high annual mileage so the extra 10-12mpg are certainly appreciated and the performance is comparable to the 'old' Arese lump.
After 3 silver cars in a row, if I'd gone for another one I'd have confirmed that I was sadly lacking in the imagination department
which was a pity as the first 159 S/W I looked at was a silver 3.2,
. Common sense (in the form of the 'Chancellor' a.k.a. the good lady indoors,
) prevailed and I came home with the 2.4 in Vesuvio Grey (looks a bit like metallic milky coffee - doesn't seem to come across properly in photos,
) with tan interior. The colour has really grown on me - it still looks clean after weeks without a wash,
, and there aren't many around. I've recently had the wheels refurbed in Graphite (sorry - no photos yet) and I think it looks uber-
Just go with what takes your fancy and I'm sure that you'll be well-pleased,
. The 159 is just a great place to be.
