Considering a tbi and have some questions
The 159 tbi finally arrived to Israel and I took it for a test drive yesterday.
The engine is great especially in mid range revs.
There are 2 things I did not like though. The first is a complete lack of alfa sound (or any sound at all) and the fact that the red line is at 5500 rpm.
The second and more disturbing is the steering, compared to my car (08 2.2 ti) the steering seems to be much lighter and much less responsive.
The test car I drove was standard (not ti) and I wonder if the differnce in response is due to difference between ti and standard or inherent in a change made to the tbi model.
I would appreciate input from people who drove 2 parallel models regarding the steering response.
1.75 Tbi 159 sw + 2.0 147 + 2.0 79 Giulietta + 2.0 72 Spider + Abarth Punto esseesse
