Thanks for sharing your experiences.
I took the 2.2 JTS out for a quick test drive yesterday. Was very impressed with the overall fit an finish of the car. Even though it is a bigger car, the inside feels a bit more 'cramped' (for lack of a better word) than my 156.
I found the pedals a little awkward to operate, especially the clutch as there seems to be no decent footrest to the left. Prefer the gearshifter in the 156 to be honest, tho the 159's is not bad.
It's nice to see that the ventilation system / aircon actually works (as opposed to those on the 156s, which I'm convinced are just for aesthetics). The longer bonnet (which you cannot see when inside the car) will take some getting used to.
On the whole I quite like it though. Was offered a decent trade on the 156, so if the banks offer me a good interest rate, I'm likely to take her.
Quick question: Does anybody know what the oil temperature gauge should be reading?
