Buying advice...Alfa 159 TBi

Hi all,

I am looking at buying an Alfa 159 1.75 TBi Turismo Sport.

I used to have a 2.2 JTS Brera and had a bit of a love/hate relationship with it. I loved it when it worked and it was shiney and blasting down the back roads. I hated it when it was faulty and costing me a fortune to repair (3000 in 3 years in repairs).

So I am looking for opinions on the 159 Petrol TBi. What are the general experiences? I am due to take it for a test drive however I am a bit concerned based on some comments on the forum that it lacks the same engine 'grunt' as the Alfa. Any opinions?

Many Thanks!

great all rounder but the sound is a bit disappointing for a petrol engine

no problems so far

easy tunable
