Re: Peter K
First off, welcome to AO.
Second off, have a look at the NW lounge and know that newbs are very welcome on the assorted runs and regular meets.
Thirdly: good choices both though there are mixed opinions about the economy of Alfa diesels. I'm amongst the reasonably happy group as I know some of the other manufacturers "mixed mpg" claims bear no resemblance to reality.
Both GT and 159 have plus and minus points depending what you want.
Do a few searches and you'll find this pairing come up fairly often. I posted some myself last summer prior to buying the Ti.
Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.
2008-15 New 159Ti experience: overwhelmingly positive. Reliable and fun over nearly 100k.
6/9/12 - 15 New Mito 135MA Distinctive - 100% reliable 37k
