Hello - new 159 owner

Hi - I bought a 159 1.9 JTDM SW Lusso about 6 weeks ago after 12 years of A**i A4 ownership. Bought with my heart rather than head for once. Having last owned an Alfa in the early 80s - a Guilietta - loved it but it rusted away underneath me - I wondered whether I was doing the right thing.

Well I love it! Comfortable, lovely and quick enough, although not as frugal on the diesel as an A4 TDi. The build quality looks pretty good as well. I've already put 3K on the clock and no problems, apart from a knocking in the front suspension - upper wishbone bush? I think I'll give that a go myself. Doesn't look too challenging in the eLearn manual...

I would like to say what an excellent forum this is - full of useful info and v helpful people - just discovered why my fuel consumption drops for a few minutes very now and again - DPF regen.

Any suggestions for best source of spares would be appreciated.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to a happy time with the 159 and will be dropping by the forum regularly. Keep up the good work guys!
