Proud New 159 Owner
Not my first post as I asked for some advice a few days ago, but following that wonderful help I'm now the proud owner of an 08 159 2.4 JTDM TI
Picked her up yesterday from JCS Fiat in Kegworth and traded in my Fiat Coupe 20 Valve Turbo (which wasn't easy for me or them. I was very attached to it but after 5 years I thought the time had come).
Anyway back to the TI
Stunning is my first impression, both looking and to drive. She's metallic black and I love still having 5 cylinders (like my Fiat). The ride is so smooth over rough roads and very relaxing on the motorway. I like the cruise control system and six speed box is excellent as are the brembo brakes.
The road holding is also far better than I was expecting and the steering very precise... I'm sure you all know this already so I'll stop babbling now
Anyway, hello to everyone and looking forward to many years of enjoyment from the TI and chatting some more on here. Great website and forum. Thanks for all the help and advice already given.
