Hi all again, I need to say things without offending people. I have driven both the 1.9JTDM GT and the 2.4JTDM 159, and I have to say they felt worlds apart! I first tried the GT, and the first thing I didn't like was the clutch which had a weird operation/ feel. Secondly the gear level felt WAY too light, and although I know it's a diesel the engine didn't sound amazing! On a good note, I have to say I still love the look of it! I got back feeling a little down as I thought Alfa's were about passion, and maybe something was wrong with me?
Then the kind dealer let me take the 159 for a spin.
Grin is put back on my face, interior is better, bigger engine pulls better (obviously), but more importantly the sound for a diesel is amazing!
As you know I'm coming from a 2.3t 260bhp car, so all will seem a little slower, but the toque is as good and the refinement is very nice!
So now I need to keep an eye out for a good deal, in Lusso or TI, and it has to be Black (meaner lookin').
Cheers all for the welcome so far, and I hope I haven't offended any GT owners, maybe I was just in a friday car?
