Crazed It's much better than I thought

Hi, bought a 2007, 30k, 159 Lusso 2.4JTDm (210) on Saturday. First couple of days checking it does what it says it can do!!! Then refilled the tank and have done 160 miles averaging 40.5mpg according to tripB computer and fuel gauge seems to back this up. No motorway, a real mixture of A, B and a bit of dual carriageway. Changed gear at 2k first to second, then 1.5 or 1.75k up through the gears and then cruise control on. Can't believe how much I like this car already. Handling out in the sticks especially surprised me for quite a heavy saloon. Suddenly all other 4 door saloon's look, well, a bit ugly. Sorry, but why would I buy anything else?

Hi, welcome. Yes I know the feeling having come back to Alfas last year after an (enforced) 10 year break. There's nothing quite like them.
