My 2.4 159 Ti was delivered for 1 March 2008. It is my 3rd Alfa (but the only new one). It is a fantastic car and I love it. There is one major problem. After 7,800 fairly careful miles my front tyres are now illegal (wear on the inside). I had the tracking and suspension checked out at the Alfa dealer in Hitchin, where it was bought, and horror, everything is as it should be. I was told that with such a heavy diesel engine and 19" alloys it was one down from a van and that everything as it should be! I cannot believe that the tyres will need changing every 7,800 miles.
