Dependant upon the miles this seems like a higher than average price to me.
The Tourismo, like mine, is the base spec, so the price generally reflects this. A great car, don't get me wrong, but I have ended up upgrading the wheels and interior trim!
1.9jts is a pretty rare engine in the 159. Have heard very little about it on the forum to date. Think it was a very early run and didn't last long at all. Was it emissions that killed it off?
I can recommend a 1.9jtdm. My first proper diesel and I think it is a cracker, esp after a remap! But the diesel varieties are no good if you do low miles and short journeys, false economy and you end up clagging up the egr etc..
The 2.2 seems to get good reviews and is more common. Any of those about in your price bracket?
