159's boring engine note!
I have happily owned a 2.5 litre V6 156 Q-shift for the last couple of years. Having now clocked up 125,000 ks on the old girl, it was time to upgrade. The 156 has a wonderful engine growl and to be honest this was one of the reasons i bought it in the first place!
I've always lusted after a 159 so purchased a 2.2 6 speed manual. Whilst very happy with this beautiful car, the classic engine note that the 156 and predecessors had, has vanished. The 159 has all the excitement and engine note of a...Toyota Corolla. I understand that certain muffler/exhausts can be purchased to rectify this sad situation. Anyone modified their exhaust to try and obtain the classic Alfa sound? If so, did it work?
