Back in a 159 - on Thursday....

So I'll be back in a 159 on Thursday, being a 57 plate 2.4JTDm Lusso. I can't wait, I really can't. Collecting from Veloces who gave me a good price on my S2000 and have promised the car will be spotless when I get it....

Anyway, with the experience I had with my previous 159, ie new steering rack and pump needed, I need some advice for my new one. It didn't make any untoward noises on the test drive and it's only done 22000 miles, but I'd like to make sure I don't need to sort this the expensive way. I know the correct fluid should be green, but if it isn't, is it easy to change at home rather than pay at a dealer?

Other jobs I'll be doing will be to update the B&M, a good detail/polish and replace the speakers. I'm getting Xenons fitted.

Eventually I'd like to upgrade the alloys and get a remap/dpf removal.

Anything else I should do when I get the car?

My wife says that Alfas aren't a matter of life and death. I agreed, but then she went and bought one!!
