Finally picked up a 159 TI

And loving it to bits!

Hello from Peterborough!

So I just bought an 08 159 2.4 JTDM 20v 210bhp QTRONIC in Black with 19" Rims and I am blown away by the whole experience! Its apleasure to own, drive and look at from inside or out!

Right off the bat, I am going straight for the AHM remap to 260bhp with DPF removal and bypass pipe as that seems to be the key (from reading this forum) to getting my mpg over 32.5! and of course a little more power is never something to be sniffed at

On a slightly negative note, I did scuff one of the alloys today (gutted) but have already found a local detailer who can hook me up with some loving repair work, as I refuse to let this beauty get tatty!

Anyway, its good to see such a helpful community here and you have already helped me a) find a remap that will improve my car, and b) find a detailer to fix my lack of appreciation for the cars turning circle and dimensions (it was only day 2 of ownership and I was being a little exuberant ) c) update my blue&me for aplletastic hook-ups, and d) point me in the direction of the interface to connect the iPhone - what more could a guy ask for?

Ok, here are a couple of pics of my new baby for your appreciation!!

Hi, a warm welcome from the Lincs Mob !!! Obviously Peterborough is not in Lincs but we are next door and do have Meets that are not too far away for you to come to, several folk from your neck of the woods attend regularly.

We are quite an active little group here so it would be very nice to see you in the Lincs Lounge and at some of our Meets soon. Lots of these coming up, some great ones coming up over the next few Months.

Our next Lincs Meet is an Evening one just outside of Lincoln on Thursday the 28th July, was a very good Meet last year and I’m hoping for the same again, come along if you can. Take a look at the Link for this Event and check out the Links for other stuff about the Lincs Mob.

Our “ regular “ Meets are usually ( but not always ) on a Thursday evening and are scattered around the County and these are interspersed with our “ special “ Meets throughout Spring, Summer and Autumn. We have a lot of Events coming up again during this year, some of them are just Beer and Chat type things but a lot of very special ones too, we don’t get bored here in the Flatlands. Keep an eye on the Lincs Lounge for full details. Here are some more upcoming Events, they will be others in between these ! (Lincs Evening Meet Going Up In The Wold.) (Four Roaring Merlins And Your Alfa Number Three.)

You might want to add your details on to the “ Names, Locations and Cars “ Thread too, I generally don’t do this unless people “ask “ in there, don’t wish to give away any secrets !

Follow the Links to see what is going on and join in, I can pretty much say that you won't regret it. Apart from myself everyone else in the Lincs Section are very nice people.........

From the Lincs Lounge also follow Links and see what we have been up to in the past, some cracking Meets and some great pictures.

Lincolnshire - Alfa Romeo Forum (Links To Meetings Pictures Thread.)

Don't forget to look at the " Stickies " right on top of the Lincs Lounge page.



Have you seen the Lincolnshire Lounge ? Don't stay off the radar, come on in and have a look !

Next Event - TBA

Look Here ! -TBA

Thanks everyone! its a pleasure to be part of the community!

@Nige005 I was born in Lincs so think I qualify will definitely swing by the Lincs forum and get integrated! See you soon no doubt!

PS, AHM said it looks like its gonna have to be DPF + EGR Removal and only about 230/240Bhp rather than 260 as the QTRONIC Box gets upset with too much torque going through it according to them! - oh well, He did say he could iron out the 2.4 standing start flat spot and increase my economy though, so throw in a couple more horses and I am a happy man! will get it booked in for about a month or so, want to run with it for a while first in case there are any teething issues I need to get the warranty onto!
