Thinking of getting a 159ti, which engine?
I have not posted on the forum for quite sometime despite being back in another Alfa 156 S/W.
So I will hopefully be moving into a new job with a car allowance and business mileage paid at a nice 45p/mile.
I have liked the Alfa 159ti for years, but now with this job change which engine do I get.??
I have read the 1.9 suffer from g/box issues, the 2.4 is a stonking engine which I do like, however what about a petrol, a 2.2 or even a TBi.
Approx mileage will prob be 20-30k year
As said with the mileage allowance I will probably make enough to pay for my private mileage too, hence my thinking of a petrol.
If I did go down the Derv route it would have to be remapped, not sure if the TBi can be and if so what power can be expected?
Anyone any advise/thoughts/discussions?
Oh forgot to say I have seen a few 10 plate "Lusso" models for sale clearly with all the Ti parts inc badges, but even with a check of the number plate they are Lusso's. Whats all that about?
