Afternoon.....finally joined after getting my Alfa.... after a series of german boxes, my heart ruled and my new company motor is a nice MY08 159....

I had to wait a while, as it was ordered just before the factory shut down for the refurb, but worth it... it's like sitting in an oasis of style and luxury compared to my previous audi's....

anyway, got a mpg issue, but I think it may need a trip to the garage for a re-map reading previous posts... only getting 36mpg on a 1.9 jtdm for 2000 miles and mostly motorway driving.... but it's a beautiful place to spend the time on the road....

159 Lusso 1.9 Jtdm - Oltremare Blue - Tan Leather - 18" Horseshoe Alloys

Re: Afternoon.....

Hello and welcome to AO - seems about rght if you drive with a heavy foot - plenty of threads in the 159 / Brera tech lounge on MPG issues.

Re: Afternoon.....

36 sounds about right for the running in period. It will improve as more miles go on the clock.
