Wave Someone thinking of 159

Just a quick hello as I am considering getting a 159 in the next month or maybe 6.

Still not sure if to go for the 2.2Jts, 1.9JTdm or 2.4JTdm but like the spec on the Lusso.

Any thought or things to watch out for?

You'll find some on here don't like diseasels.
Others will say it's the only way to go.

If you do a lot of miles, a diesel is certainly more sensible.
Drive both and make your choice

And if you have a couple of CPU cycles to spare on your laptop or home PC:

Petrol or Diesel

I agree most people recommend higher milage Diesel is the way to go but for lots of motorway miles I'm not convinced. Diesel is most efficient around towns in comparison to Petrol but on motorways the gap closes. Petrol is cheaper by 1-4p a litre dependant on time of year and the Diesel has a cam belt at 400 - 500 every 60000? Miles where I believe the 2.2 JTS is a chain.

If your budget can stretch get a 1750 TBi petrol one - fab engine!
