Thumbs Up Replacement 159 SW on its way!

After rejecting the 159 I had, ARUK offered to replace it. In the interim the dealer gave me a 159 SW. with 2 kids its more practical for me but still has the style and great drive. So Ive went for the 2.4jtdm again in Titanio with black leather, 18" 7 hole alloys, bose stereo, blue tooth etc. It'll be here in 10 days and I cant wait!

As a good will guesture, AR knocked about 1.5K off the price - now thats customer service. thumbs up to Mervyn Stewart - they were superb about the whole thing!

Great to hear mate.

Can I also suggest you put a link to this thread on the thread where you'd mentioned about the problems with the previous 159?

I'd like people who see the old thread realise there is a happy ending to it

Excellent news!

There seems to be a few good AR UK dealer
stories about exchanges recently.

Good show!

I am regaining my belief in the human race. Let's hope Alfa don't botch it.

Congratulations Mark!

I have posted the the text of the letter I have sent to my dealership on the General forum - as you will see it owes a lot to the format you gave me - hopefully I will get a similar result.......

Re: Replacement 159 SW on its way!

That's great news. I looked at a sportwagon myself but the lack of extra rear leg room for the kids negated any real advantage over the saloon which was cheaper. They do look smart though.

Get a few miles under the wheels then go for a remap, it's worth it for the extra performance

Good luck with the new one.
