Picked up a 57 plate alfa 159 2.4 Jtdm Lusso in red about three weeks ago and must say that already i have fallen in love with this car!
I have always enjoyed my cars and have had sporty little hatchbacks in the past ( saxo vtr, saxo vts, cliosport 172) but lately have had company cars, German ones, which although are nice they lack a certain passion and feel.
The alfa however takes me back to the days when i enjoyed driving and i have a rekindled love for twisty roads and sweeping corners.
Sadly though i have already experienced the much talked about frustration of the alfa owner when the car started to run a bit rough and the engine management light reared it's ugly face only to disappear a day later. From reading other threads i imagine this is caused either by the egr valve or dpf system but thankfully the car came with a warranty so no biggie.
Sounds mental, especially seeing as i have only had it three weeks and already experienced a problem but i would highly recommend this car to anyone who appreciates a drivers car.
Next step has to be a v6 ti!!! Hopefully next year!
