Sort of newbie....so hello again.
I joined almost 2 years ago but haven't been back here until today. My wife is the Alfa owner with a facelift 156 1.8ts Veloce, and I really like the car but have a Volvo addiction. However, I'm thinking of a diesel car in the next few months as I currently run 3 guzzlers, with a V70 R, C70 T5 and a 854 T-5R.
So I'm used to a bit of power but as I do 25k+ a year, I need I need to cut my fuel bills. The 156 2.4jtdm seems a good compromise between power and economy, as I'm currently used to 25-30mpg. I love Alfa's styling both interior and exterior, and may well end up with one to get out of the 'Volvo mould'.
Anybody want to buy a Volvo....lol.
