Alfa 159 SW Ti

Thumbs Up Hello from Wellington, NZ

Hi All,

After weeks of mulling it over I have finally taken the plunge and traded my 2009 Audi S3 for a lovely black Alfa 159 2.4 JTDm Sportwagon. I have had it for a week now and love it, it is so much more comfortable than the Audi was :-) and the kids fit which is a bonus.

Having previously owned a Subaru WRX, a Renault RS Megane and an S3 the 159 is a slight downgrade performance wise, but my boy racer days are done now and the needs of my young family come first now.

But I'm very happy with the 159, its a real looker and it does have a surprising turn of grunt when you plant your right foot and the sound of the 5 cylinder engine is lovely.

will post pics as soon as i have given it a wash
