159 Rear Seats & Load Through

Hi, my last Alfa was a 75 saloon and I've finally decided to buy a 3.2 Q4 159. I looked at 2 this weekend, one had the rear seats that fold flat and the other had fixed rear seats restricting load capacity. Spec was similar with momo leather and the cars were on 06 and 56 plates. Please can anyone tell me how I can tell which models will have the fold flat rear seats and how common this is on the 159?
Also, how critical is mileage on these cars - I mean when will the expensive items like the clutch typically need replacing? I'm looking at a car on Autotrader that has 56k on the clock which is perfect for me other than the mileage is a bit more than I wanted.
Thank you, Gary.

Folding rear seats were an option on 159s apart from Ti's (I think) which didn't come until 2007 anyway. A fairly rare option too, you won't find many with them.

As for possible faults best do a search on here and you will find various things to look out for.

Only the Ti or sportwagons have them as standard - and as an option it was very expensive.

Welcome back, and welcome to the small and happy (most of the time) band of 3.2 owners.
