117k still on the same clutch and just about to put it up for sale because I can't afford the fuel running costs anymore.
I might swap it for a 159 1.9ti or a GT 1.9 or go german

159Ti 1.9Jtdm

Sorry to bump this thread, just wondering if there are many more 159's out there on the roads now a few years down the line?

Only just bought mine with only 42K on the clock but I aim to put another 120K on I cover long motorway miles.

Read a lot lately about the infamous M32 box trouble and I need a little morale boosting as I hope I haven't bought a money pit. Reading this thread has cheered me up

159 2.4 Ti

160k on a 2.4 ti for me. Still on the original clutch and gearbox untouched bar an oil change. She's been remapped for a few years and has the odd war wound, but is still a strong old beast!

Feeling positively youthful this morning at 92.5k having read this ...

Brilliant thread and comforting to know at 18k per year she'll still be sub 200k by my early retirement when she'll be 20yrs old (that's less than average mileage init)

Since visiting Gus, she's like driving a different car I think i've fallen in love all over again

Apologies for picture, but if you've also got an iphone you'll be used to that

Alfa 159 2.4 Ti

112k miles. Same clutch and gearbox. Biggest problem I have had is with some wiring wearing against a bracket and car cutting out randomly because of it. Had the problem for ages without garages finding it. All sorted now.

It's in with Ned at Autolusso shortly for cam belt and to have the swirl flap removed.

Any 1750 tbi owners with high mileage?
Mines only done 35k but would be interested seeing if they have longevity.

97k on mine '08 1.9 16v jtdm. Got at 40k (in 2011 I think)

Cambelt and water pump done at 60k. EGR and DPF blanked at around 55k, best thing I've done, the next 10-20k just got smoother as the crap got cleaned out with the flow.

Issues: EGR and MAF sensors failed around 50k (think the car had been sitting round a while before I purchase for the egr).
Wiring (in the drivers fusebox) to low pressure fuel pump failed around 80k.
Both rear Ti springs snapped (around 500miles between each!) at around 92k.
