Newbie from Dublin

Just joined today and I have to say the forum looks to be very active. I'm looking at getting back into an Alfa, my first car was a luminous green Alfasud 1.3ti and my second car was a 1.5ti, both many many moons ago. I have my eye on a nice 2008 159 JTS TI 2.2 petrol, I will be asking for advice elsewhere on this site. Anyway, the site looks great and if I do end up buying I will be frequenting a lot more.

Cheers

Welcome to AO & hopefully back to Alfa ownership soon, hope the 159ti works out for you

BTW be aware of the stretched timing chain issue on the JTS (it's not cheap to replace) & also the inner tyre wear issue on the 19" wheels, there's plenty of info on both topics in the Tech Lounge Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider - Alfa Romeo Forum

PS drop in & say hello to the locals when you get a chance http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/repub...on-thread.html :IRISH:

I had a good read of the buying guide and this one has had the tracking just recently done and also has had a couple of new Avons on the front. The chain I was aware of but I'm not sure if this one has been replaced, what should I look out for?

Sounds like you've done your homework
I'm not sure what the signs are I'm just aware of it being a potential issue on the JTS.
