Alfa 159 - red color fading over time?

Hello Alfisti.
I am in the Progress of thinking of buying af used Alfa 159 2,0 jtdm from 2011 :-). The car is red - not metallic red. During time I have seen many red cars getting whitish and pale when time goes by. Has any experienced this with Alfa 159?

Anything to check or be concerned about buying this car model? Kilometre is 120.000 so it has been heavily driven according to its age...but it should not be bad when dealing with a diesel!

Kind regards,
Tom, DK

Welcome to the forum. My 159 is in Alfa Rosso, a 2008 car with no fade.

I seen my old 2003 156 the other day - zero fading.

The Alfa red is clear coated to protect it, the old Post Office Vans have the red pigment on the surface and yes, it bleaches out.
