OK I didnt contribute to the last "Alfa 159 top 5 small likes/dislikes" thread I know but wanted to get to know my 159 a bit more before adding my list
.. so in no particular order ..
1> Envious looks I still get from other ( usually BMW, Audi ) drivers .. and lots of women in supermarket ..wife not too please about that
2> The diamond -eyed headlamps and razor-sharp front grille - intimidating!
3> Sumptuously styling inside as well as out.
4> The torque from the excellent JTD MultiJet unit
5> The ...ahem .."special" feeling when you own an Alfa Romeo
1> Does not have the addictive metallic zing of the old Twin Spark unit on previous 2.0L petrol 156
2> High driving position ( getting use to it )
3> Misalinment between dash \ door trim
4> The squeeks & creaks ( windscreen , door etc ) However thanks to you all on this
forum I have resolved most of them ( good old silicon lube etc )
5> New alfa chrome tail pipe doesn't look as good as I hoped ...seems to be sticking out a bit too far ..not a neat fit althought fitted correctly ( I think the accessory one are slightly different from the factory fitted ones on 2.2jts and Ti )
