Looking to join the 159 fun!
first post, and looking to buy a 159, probably looking at unrealistic expectations for what I want.
Having been out of work for a while, and now back in, probably be doing about 20k miles/ year, so looking at a 1.9 JTDM (is the 2.4 that much more thirsty?). One thing I would like is blue and me, but understand that is q2 onwards as standard, otherwise have to be lucky.
Suspect I am looking at a high miler (I assume the diesels do pretty well, looking at turbo and DPF issues on these (what exactly should I look for, black smoke and loss of power?).
Hoping to spend just under £7k, or should I look to spend a little more? I travel round much of England, so can travel (within reason) for decent examples (if you have seen one)
