four days ago I had an important meeting, and my old bmw refused to start (for the millionth time this month), so I there and then decided to get a new car!
When I got home from the meeting, I started looking online for some useable cars nearby, and stumbled over a beautiful 159 in a dealership.
I've never owned an alfa, and was wery sceptical at first (with alfa's somewhat ragged reputation), but the car was soooo beautiful!!
So i got my mom(!) to drive me to the dealership (340km away from where I live), to have a look at the car.
I wasn't planning on buying a car that day, I just wanted to have a look at how the alfa was to drive.
but I immediately fell head over heels in love, and two hours later I drove home in my very own alfa!
It's not one of the "good" engines, I know (1.8 mpi), but it's more than enough to get me around town.
and I would prefer some tan leather seats instead of the boring grey velour ones.
but these things are soon forgotten when I step out of the car and see what a true piece of art it is! I simply LOVE how it looks from every angle!
The dealer gave me a two year warranty on the car, even though it's an 07-mod.
but I still can't shake the fear of being let down by poor reliability.
Have any of you fine people had any major issues with your 159's?
are there things I should be aware of?
I know I should have researched this before buying the car, but as I said; I fell in love the second I saw it!
anyhow... I'm looking forward to chatting about alfa's and mods with you guys in the future
P.S. are there any websites I can order a sports exhaust with double tailpipes for the 1.8 mpi? I can't seem to find it anywhere!
