Our 156 'wagon is behaving again but the electrical problem has prompted her indoors to suggest that it may be time to trade up to a 159. Never one to miss an opportunity for a car search, I have been browsing the usual sites.
As we hope to change the gtv for a spider in the not too distant future, my budget limits my choice, but I like the 5 pot 2.4 diesel better than the 2.0 anyway.
There are a couple of 2.4's that are the right spec but one is an early (200 bhp) version with lower miles and the other is slightly newer (210 horses) but has 25K more miles. How much of a difference do the changes made when they went to 210 bhp?
