Annual Report

I have not been on the site for a while for various reasons of no interest to any one but me, however I've had my 159 for one year now and to redress some of the negative comments that were being made when last I visited this forum I felt I should tell all that I continue to be smitten by my beautiful italian. Sure the 2.4 diesel was a compromise but what a pleasant surprise it turned out to be performance wise. It is without doubt one the most striking cars on the road and to the consternation of some I have also found it extremely reliable, I have replaced 1 brake light bulb, that's it in a year. The depreciation of Alfas is a definite plus point to used car buyers like myself, so I do worry that if they get a reputation for reliability the days of the bargain may end, I am considering spending time parked in laybys with the bonnet up just to perpetuate the myth. I will admit that the paintwork aint great, could have done with a few more coats to be honest but owning and driving this beautiful machine makes this no more that a minor criticism. I think you probably get the idea by now that I love this motor so I shant labour the point, but to anyone considering getting a 159 I say get in there you won't regret it.

Same here! Had my 2.4 Brera 12 months now. Except for general service items that I've done myself no problems at all in last 25k miles. Like you I hope nobody catches on how reliable these cars are now. It's great being in such a low production fantastic car.
