Well Happy Back in an Alfa !

Now the proud owner of a 159 TBi Lusso in Stromboli grey, black leather

Despite the Maxda 6 I had being a very good car I still found myself wanting a 159 everytime I saw one, so when a well priced TBi appeared the deal was done!

Car feels great to be in, very classy and immensely solid! I'm slighty missing a few of the extras the Mazda had (sunroof, keyless entry, Bose, heated/electric seats, front parking sensors, Xenons) but the looks of the 159 more than make up for that.

The torque of the engine is great, but taking a while to get used to the turbo lag, sounds good too if a little quiet

A good choice! Agree, just bought a 1750 myself and love it! Good torque and actually it's a quiet engine but there's a nice whistle when you cruise around in it. Stromboli grey is a top colour IMO too!
