New 159 Bloke

Hello Everyone,

I've been an avid lurker on this forum for a while, I became a member a while ago but this is my first post. I've been driving a W reg 156 2.0 TS Veloce since 2005. Absolutely adored the car. I'm in the process of selling it if anyone's keen.

But, I've just become the proud owner of a silver 07 plate 159 1.9 JTDM Turismo (with leather and 17" wheels). It basically looks like a Lusso.

This forum is fantastic and you guys have given me so much knowledge I was able to take into account before I made my purchase. Thanks.

I still can't believe that I own a car that looks this good inside and out and makes me feel like a million dollars.

I'm still getting used to the characteristics of the diesel engine. I'm reading lots about remaps/tuning boxes/mods etc. I am tempted and would like to make 150bhp become 200bhp as promised from the 1.9JTDM. More importantly I'd like to improve the low speed response and pick up at low revs. Basically improve driveability.

Anyway, thanks again everyone for your helpful comments on this fantastic forum.
