I've spent the last couple of days trying to tell my brother in law not to buy a diesel for his town driving. Even the dealer has told him to buy petrol, but he's totally brainwashed that he's going to get 60+ MPG. At the minute my diesel isn't too nice to drive around town, can never find the right gear, hoping the remap will smooth all that out. I bought the 2.4 diesel largely for the power, but also decent fuel economy and lowish tax band. Only other option would've been a 3.2, but 2 x 3.2's, both on highest tax band and poor MPG would've drained me. Alfa just didn't have another petrol engined 159 that I would've wanted.
