first time alfa owner
Although I convinced my brother back in 2003 that a 156 was the way forward it has still taken me 9 years before I took the leap myself. He had 8 years of relatively trouble free motoring and loved his 156 twin-spark to bits until it became to thirsty for the journey's he does.
I was previously a dedicated Saab 9-5 guy which culminated in a 2001 9-5 stage 3 aero with every suspension upgrade available on it to stop the wallow. Unfortunately I had to scrap it and so started the search for a replacement.
Having decided that I have an irrational dislike to audi's, BMW's were to expensive and a little to utilitarian inside for me, that I didn't earn enough to be able to afford a Jaguar XF, and that I wanted all the toys of a saab in a fast diesel, I stumbled onto the 159.
I loved the look of this motor when it was first launched and after a bit of research found a stormwell grey, tan leather 2.4 lusso with low mileage not too far away. I have had the car for 2 months now and so far the only thing I have had issues with is the level of service from the main dealer.
So far loving the car and hoping my alfa experience lives up to my Bro's!!!!!
