Hi all, from Portugal!

Hello! Just to introduce myself, I'm now the owner of a 2006 159 1.9jtdm, the 150bhp version. It's my first Alfa, although not the first one I've driven, I'm also acquainted to the 156 1.8 140bhp. And, though the 156 might be more agile and give an altogether "faster" feeling, the 159 is, in my opinion, in another league. It feels more solid, steering is spot on, braking is top notch, and, beeing somewhat progressive in taking off (the famous weigt issue), is by no means a weak, numb car.
I've yet to report any malfunction, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed! And there's just so much stuff you can read about things going seriously wrong that, well, we'll just wat and see.

Just for the record, I'm "evolving" from a S-Max - terrific car, great handling, but too big for my present needs - and, after selling the Ford, a brief two-months period with an.... .... 1989 Opel Corsa GT! Almost an antique, and a tiny one for that matter! Now, it's Alfa territory.
