Hi all Alfisti here. For ca. 2 years I've been driving my beautiful silver 159 with 150HP 1.9 engine recently upgraded to 180.
Another two 3-doors 147 are waiting just next to: red 2-litres TwinSpark - the 1st from all of them and really amazing - and brand new black 150HP diesel. All three can make use of their speedy engines and sticky wheels, as well as Bose and few other things. However we'll say "good bye" to the red beauty, soon. That's life.
BTW: I don't know if I'm alone in this observation: everything goes to the side when I approach with my 159, I mean everything and everywhere in Europe. And I like it very, very much.
