8 valve Eco 159 engine - any experiences?


I'm hoping to order a 159 next month.

Has anyone had any experience of the 8 valve Eco engine? Not my engine of choice, but in the interest of keeping my BIK down (will be company car) and staying within my lease budget, having the 8 valve engine might be the only 159 that I can get. Think I can get a the Sports trim on it within budget.

I'm going to try and get a test drive of 159 with the 8v engine, but would be interested to hear any first hand experiences of anyone who's tired one out.

It's a shame the lease costs are so high on the Alfa. Audis costing considerably more are coming in at the same monthly rental as the most basic 159s - but I'd much rather an Alfa! At the moment I'm thinking I'd rather have the Alfa's style over the Audi's performance!

Thanks in advance
