Re: New 159, problems or 'they all do that sir..'
The only problem with paint discrepancies and Alfa Dealers (As experienced by a few brand new Alfa buyers from this forum) is that when they try and rectify it they often make it alot worse.
Also, is it possible the auto lights and auto wipers are faulty because of the same thing? Not sure if they're linked somehow, probably not in fact, but it is possible.
I would definitely return it to the dealer to have the AUTO problems sorted out, not sure about the paint though mate as they can bodge the hell out of it.
If I was you I would return the car, list all the problems, and hope they can rectify all, but cross your fingers. Worst comes to the worst they mess it up and you demand your cash back. But good luck with that because AR are a nightmare with that too...
Alfa Romeo is one car I will never buy Brand New from, mainly because their dealer network within the UK stinks apparently.
Good luck though,
