Got "poisoning" by a 159
It just happened to me something rather tricky.
I was ordering a Giulietta 1.4 MA with pretty much all the optional extras, including TCT, that make up to 43.000€. For some bureaucratic reason, I had to delay signing the contract and after that, the sales guy showed me a test car they have just for fun - a 159 TBI TI pack - with a huge amount of extras.
I went for a ride and... it was amazing! What a glorious machine! I love the engine and the styling, the interior, the seats and it has everything my Giulietta would have except the automatic gearbox. Best of all, since it has 10.000km, they are reducing 25% of the price - making it significantly cheaper than the Giulietta.
They have two 159 equal: one sedan, another sportwagon, in Alfa Red.
As a conclusion, know I am going to test it tomorrow again and properly, check if everything is ok and so on, for then talk about prices more seriously.
What do you guys say? The sedan has sat-nav, the sport wagon no. Can it has nav on the board computer? I have seen some pictures with something like that.
What do you say about the car, engine, TI pack, etc? Is it a solid car? Building quality, etc?
Looking forward for your feedback.
