Picked the 159 up at 10:45 today.
It had been prepared really well, looked lovely in the winter sun. All taxed and ready to go!
I am loving the quite, smooth ride, even on Ti suspension and 19" wheels it is like a magic carpet compared to the GT. Feels like I am sitting higher than the GT, even with the seat on its lowest setting, sure I will get used to that.
Forgot how big the wing mirrors are! You can see as far back as the late 1970s they are sooooo big!
The leather is lovely, soft but supportive. The leather in the GT had become quite shiny and smooth, especially on the drivers side. This leather seems to be wearing much better. Is the LE leather different to the Lusso spec? Seems to be softer?
I can already see I am going to miss the Bose, but the Blue and Me is a decent enough tool. Not sure what to make of the Blue and Me Nav dongle thing. Will read up on it. I get the feeling it may be appearing in the classifieds soon though.......
It is parked up in the work car park now. Can't drive it home until gone 5pm.
Love the shorter shift of the gear stick over the GT.
This one seems a perfect compromise between my previous 159 and the GT. Best of both worlds.
Pictures to follow.......
