It's Taken A Year...
...but finally I've found and bought a 2.0 JTDM 159 TI Sportwagon via Chris Variava (who's service I can't fault)...and lovin' it :-)
January 2010 car, silver with dark titanium rims. black bars and rear tints...looks awasome. Hopefully many years of happy Alfa motoring lay ahead.
Although I've not posted on this forum before, would like to 'thank' those of you with Alfa (specifically 159) experience for highlighting possible 'issues' with the car...needless to say, I've not been put off :-)
