New member from Oporto, Portugal


My name is Daniel, from Oporto, Portugal and i own a Alfa 159 SW 2.4JTDm 210cv from 2009.

Bought used last February and there were some bugging stuffs that bothered me, but are all being solved under warranty from the dealer and im very pleased with the car:

- New distribution kit and water pump at 65.000km (sorry, but i dont have any converter to miles, reght now) due to a broken screw. Total cost = 0€ (warranty) but i saw the invoice from the dealer: 828€ VAT included. Cost of the broken screw: 1€
- New EGR valve at 67.000km. Ive (yop, still have the problem) the startup problem that i explained in other thread: o can start the car, but the minute is on, the revs start to juggle and the car just goes down. Only at 2nd tentative the car cranks normally (still juggle, but stabilizes) and the problem is just startup. Other than that, perfect! The new EGR solved the problem initialy (for a week maybe?) but now is starting to getting worst again (eventhoug is better than before, because e juggles and trembles, but after 3 sec is alright!). Total cost = 0€ (warranty)

Other than this, i love the car, the looks, the 18 rims and the power of the car!

P.S1: This is a very used model in portugal (Sportwagon model) and is one of the many undercovered cars that the police uses in highways
P.S2: Sorry for any misspeled or any english error

I Daniel I'm from Famalicao! But I live in the UK.

A shame in Portugal petrol is so expensive, since I came here I found the beauty of the busso v6 quad cam powered petrol cars, wich are rarely seen there.
