New 159 2.0 JTDM ti owner.
Hello, I got the car a week ago without doing any research on the car so I've just had a quick look through some of the threads on here, found some interesting stuff and thought I'd introduce myself.
My wife have birth to our 3rd child a couple of weeks ago and the only car we had with 5 seats was a little fiesta so I decided to get her a bigger car. We went out looking at audi A4s but didn't really like any then saw a white 159, loved it, had a test drive, loved it more and brought it. The car was only £7500 on a 2011 reg. The milage is high at 100K but it's all motorway miles and has fsh so thought compared to some of the A4s we saw it was a bargain.
I'm no stranger to modding, as soon as I got the car a mate told me to get it mapped from 170 to 215 but this is a family car that my wife will be driving mostly so I'm not overly concerned about performance or exhaust tone however I did read something in another thread about the egr valve getting clogged on the diesel cars when there only used on short runs. Would a re map be the best remedy for this.
Anyway, we love our new alfa. Now we have one I can see what all the fuss is about.
