159 Ti 2.0 JTDm

This 2.0 diesel in my Ti is such a contrast, 1st really rev's, feel like it gets me to 30 ish, but just wont pull low down in 2nd like the Mondeo. Funnily enough I think 2nd is great once it gets going though.

I guess thats what you get with a bigger turbo. Out of interest, is the turbo on the Alfa variable? I know the one on my Mondy was.

My only wish at the moment would be to get better than 36mpg! Its got < 2k mile on it so hope it loosens up...
Yep its a variable turbo! There is def power in the 2.0JTDm, but you dont really noticed it until you are in 3rd gear +
