Is the aLFA 159 1.8mpi any good?
Can anyone give me any good advice on this? I have had two 156's a 2 litre twin spark with the usual great sounding 'fizzy' engine and now a 1.9jtdi which pulls like a train. Mine has 180k on it and it goes like new.
The problem is I have decided to get a 159 and today I saw the exact car I am looking for, a black 159, 18 in alloys, leather etc looks great. I have not yet found a diesel in good enough condition within my budget, this one is a 2008 with only 35k miles. The dealer is holding it for me until tomorrow and I am so undecided.
On test drive it didnt have as much power as my old 156 diesel and I have heard the economy is poor and it is a GM engine unmodified, if so what does twin flush or whatever it was I saw written on the engine. Please help I will appreciate any advice I dont want to buy it tomorrow and regret it, but visually etc the car is exactly what i have been looking for. I brought my previous Alfa'a after getting advice on here so hopefully someone can help now. Thanks Peter
