Well, today I just puttered around town.
But on Saturday, I drove between Edinburgh and The Isle of Skye and back again. Sometimes through blizzard conditions. The 159 handled it with aplomb. I got stuck in Invergarry on a steep section but switched off the ASR and managed to get the car going again.
I've had the car for a couple of weeks now. Sold a two-year old BMW m135i to the dealer who sold me the 159. I don't regret the change of car. The 159 is a cracking drive.
It has a few issues to iron out but none appear to be urgent. There's a stutter at 1500rpm when I'm accelerating hard, the rear left window safety mechanism is faulty and displaying an error, and the audio system will be getting upgraded shortly. And the power steering seems to be a bit heavy and shuddery at low speeds. Otherwise feels good to drive. My partner, who has an A3 loves the 159.
