An update: My car had recently undergone some major repairs. The injectors were leaking diesel and had turned the radiator hose to mush. Fortunately, Alfa agreed to discount the three injectors needed and the lease company agreed the work. It was at the dealer for 3 weeks, new injectors, new brakes, tyres, a full service. Now it's back on the road, I really did miss it. I've asked the lease company how much they wanted.... £9720.00, my heart dropped.. I think this is way too much and they won't come close to that in the auction, probably around £5K at an auction.. They won't budge on the price... I love the car but just feel they want too much for her. So, now it will go back in May and off to the auction. Now I'm left with Merc CLA, GLA for the new C-Class, for the Jag XF. I want to avoid Audi and BMW. Disappointed Alfa are dragging their heels on the replacement for the 159, I will give the lease company an offer for around £7K and see what happens, I'll just be a pain in their arse and see if they give in and I'll keep the 159 for another year or so and see what Alfa do with the Giulia or wait for the new Jaguar XE.
