I did, I was an enforcer of the 159, used to go around in it like a freaking boss. Speak out loud about it and general Alfa romeo world as well.
Then, it started to fail and failed again and again, take notice, I was maintaining the car on a best of the best parts/components behaviour, then, it failed again...
MarkII EGR fitted.
MarkII DPF fitted.
Millers XFD full synth oil every year, i dont care about allowed mileage anymore(another 100 bucks everytime i change oil).
Always filled up whit the best Diesel fuel i can spot around town( even if it costs me 1.57€ per liter and the car gouges 7.5l to 100 kms driven).
Once per week i stick nearly 400 non stop kms at it, so dpf should more than have time to do it's thing.
According to Alfa Romeo authorized tech center all ECU electro-mechanical parameters are correct and un-corrupted...
Now the infamous gear box-dual mass flyweel-clutch conundrum starts to show up sometimes
What did i do wrong or am I still doing?
I just dont care anymore, i can´t, purely and simply.
