Newbie looking for a 159 2.4JTDM TI!

Hi all,

I am in the market for a 159, 2.4 JTDM TI, preferably in black.

Currently i am driving an 07 2.0 TDI Passat, which was only ever intended to be a stop gap between jobs. Previous to that i had a Mazda 3 MPS running 288BHP, which i miss dearly!!

Anyway, i will need to shift the Passat first, then i can properly start my search! Just registering on here for advice and to look over common faults. To my surprise, there doesnt seem to be as many as i thought there would, certainly no more than any VAG.

Im from Glasgow and there really isnt many up here, they all seem to be down south of the border, and most in London. There is one up here, exact spec im after, although it is silver, and i really want black!

So if anyone on here has any other pointers for me, fire away!!

Welcome and good luck with the search. The 159 is essentially a very good car by today's standards.

Welcome along. I used to have a 159 ti 2.4 JTDM Qtronic in red, which was a nice car apart from the auto gearbox. I'm also on the lookout for another 159ti in either red or stromboli grey but with manual gearbox. I've just posted up a pic of it in the gallery just after it came out of the detailers. Nice cars but you'll find it a bit slow compared to your Mazda. I went from a 300bhp Focus ST to a 159 and noticed a big difference. Cracking looking cars though. Not many nicer looking cars on the road than a 159 ti.
Hope you find a nice black one.

Cheers guys!

Spoke to a couple dealers hoping for a trade in. The one with the Grey 159 offered 5500-6000, and the Black one offered 5000-5500. I am in no rush, so i will hopefully advertise the car at the start of next year, and see if i can get it to sell privately.

I can only hope that a few more 159's come up for sale then!

Thanks for the welcome!
