2.2 JTS or 2.4 JTDM Alfa 159 ?
Hello, guys? Being on the verge of ordering a new Alfa 159 I am still undecided between 2.2 JTS and 2.4 JTDM ( only tested the diesel option). I know this may have been debated over and over, but I am looking for your recent experience as Alfa 159 owners. Unfortunately there aren't many posts regarding Alfa 159 owning experience, and that should excuse me reopening this eternal debate diesel vs petrol.
Regarding the diesel option, I fear the extra weight added, which net rumours already say that this might prove the Alfa 159's Achile's heel! Also, being a happy owner of a petrol engine for 6+ years (Alfa 156 2.0 TS) , I might adapt myself or not to diesel engine characteristics. Why not choose the 2.2 JTS then, you could ask? Because here in Europe the diesel mania is growing every year, and I am afraid when time will come in 2-3 years I might have huge difficulties in finding a buyer for my beauty.
