Hi to all,
After painful 3 months of waiting, I am a happy owner of 159 SW Ti with 1750 tbi engine in Alfa Rosso
To put it simply, she is breathtakingly, stunningly beautiful
The car, as requested, came with bi-xenon lights, electric seats + mirrors, Blue&Me and full-size spare wheel.
Ownership experience started as it should - by breaking down in the middle of the road, just because they have put only 1 litre of gas in it (well, it's Belgium after all)...
Then "check engine" light came and stayed
But all that doesn't really matter, as now the check engine light is gone ("you just drive and if it is still on by tomorrow, call us") and she is getting better and better with each mile. That's true that the engine is quiet, but I actually appreciate that. Since she came with just 1km on the clock, I am still very gentle with the not-so-loud pedal and I cannot fully judge the engine's potential (had no chance of test drive before buying). Only one thing could be better, which is starting. Clutch is gentle and engine does not pull much low down, so I have impression that she will stall... hope I will re-learn how to drive a car.
Will report further when I will have a chance to run her in and explore fully the engine's potential
Pictures will follow in coming days (weather truly sucks here right now).
