GT 1.9 JTD


Hi prospective 156 JTD SW owner here - great to see such an active forum, always a good sign when looking to change car manufacturer.

Coming over from BMW running am E39 M Sport 530d at present and an E46 320d Touring.

Trying to decide between a 2.4 10v or a 1.9 16v JTD - running costs have to be the decider.
Living in Ireland the road tax is a killer 710 on the 1.9 & 1010 on a 2.4 ! (1400 on the 530 )

Thank's all ! My mechanic has advised against running an Alfa on our terrible roads saying I'll be going through suspension parts every few months but I'm gonna check in the Irish lounge for feedback...
