159SW TI or not TI??
We're looking at buying a low mileage 159SW 2.0JTDM soon!
Just trying to decide between a TI or not TI.
The non-TI we are looking at has done a paltry 10,000 miles, and is a 61 plate (plenty of Alfa warranty). It's only a 136 bhp but I'm sure could be remapped.
The TI we're looking at has done 28,000 miles, is a 10 plate, is a 170bhp but costs £1000 more, which is right at the top of our budget, so no spare money for remap/DPF delete. The dealer (Mangos) is a long way from us, so if it's a dealer only warranty, that warranty is not much use to us.
We've test driven a TI 170, and it was great. We haven't tested a non-TI because there are so few around of the late model ones (we will try to test the one we are looking at but it's a long way away and we're running out of free weekends before our new baby arrives!)
So the questions is, is there a big difference in ride and handling between the TI and non TI?
Would you always take a TI even it if meant going without a warranty and having a car that's done 18,000 miles more?
