1.8, 2.2 and 3.2
Reading with interest as I have recently being looking for a 2.2 Ti, as they are now in the 12K price range @35K miles.
Was looking at a 2.4 diesel, but have been put off by...
1. Diesel Noise, clatter and stench. We all buy Alfa's thinking of the V6 sound and end up with a 1.9 JTDM stinker.
2. The DPF/EGR issues that you WILL have. OK, they should of designed it to work, you can get it removed for 600 notes, but then you have insurance matters, increased premiums etc.
I had written off the V6 as just too uneconomical but looking at this thread, there is not much in it.
Previous experience with Mercedes and BMW is to just get the biggest engine available in said car, if the difference is say <5 MPG.
Down sides to a V6 is the servicing costs, depreciation and resale values. In 5 years road tax will be higher, petrol £2 + a litre, heck you would have to give it away; they could be on Pistonheads 'shed of the week' for less than a grand.
Who disagrees ?
