New Year Update!
So its been a while since I posted anything about my lovely 159.
Well, all has not been perfect sadly. I have now covered a mere 14,000 miles and for a fair number things have been OK.
I then got a great cloud of white smoke rising from the bonnet and a strong smell of fuel one day. After getting to the dealer, it appears that a pressurised diesel line had failed and was spraying fuel all over the place. Still, nothing will rust under my bonnet for the rest of time!
SGT were again brilliant and fixed it in an hour while I waited.
The gearbox still sounds "dry" but works faultlessly.
My B&M kit has got fussy on which type of USB drive it will read, but seems OK otherwise.
The heated seats continue to be hotter than the sun, I defy anyone to actually leave them on 3!
Having had the dash out, its obvious that there will now always be a small amount of rattling from the front now and again, I'm living with it.
It drinks fuel, but I seem to need to keep sticking my foot on the loud button! I'll grow up one day.
All in all, I still love driving my 159 but I do wish that the whole fuel system on mine was on someone elses.
oh - and my brakes work. So mustn't grumble
