159 JTDm Lusso

Wave GT or 156 or 159???

Hi all!
We're back!!
We once upon a time owner a beautiful 156 2.5 V6..... and regretfully sold it.

It was too painful coming back on here and reading all your jolly, happy (and sometimes upsetting) news from all your big Alfa adventures!

Well, I can't take it anymore. We've had a Nissan, a citroen, a VW, a Peugeot, a Ford, a Merc and... a Skoda....(hey its a VW engine, okay!!? lol)

But we're getting a new Alfa again!
Well, actually, hubby can keep the Ford for now, i'm getting my own Alfa!

Not really sure what to get much choice! *spoilt*

But more sensibly, I commute 80 miles a day so I can't really (shouldn't really) get another V6... *wishes*

Soooo, I've been checking out GT's, 159s and some late 156s (facelift editions)
I'm looking for a 1.9 JTD.

What's all your preferences and why? What should I get??

And more importantly, are any of the 3 more reliable then another (albeit being the same engine?) What's you knowledge and experiences?

Thanks all. It's so good to be back.

hi and welcome back.

I'm not the most knowledgeable but, 156 and GT have the same engine but the 159 has a new engine. Reliability, as per every car,you can get a good one or a bad one but the 159 should be more reliable, also 159 is on a difference price bracket. My choice, GT, perfect seat position and amazing look
