Have posted one or two threads so I thought I would say hello. Am on here because I am buying a 159 2.4 JTD in Oceanic Black with Black interior.
Must be barmy and perhaps it's something to do with post mid-life crisis. Have an X reg 540 Sport with all the toys at present and have got bored with it over the last 3 years. Will be giving up space, pace, drive and maybe reliabilty, though I hope not.
Have owned a large number of cars - Cosworths, Impreza WRX's, Supra TT, Ford Mexico (anyone else remember them?). Even owned a Guilliets 2.0 in the 80's. I loved that when it was going and when bits weren't falling off it. Despite aweful driving position it had something about it. Sadly, it died and I nearly did with it.
So I want something sporty, though my days of all out power have gone along with my eyesight, reactions and bravado. Must also be comfortable, different, eyecatching, and reliable. So I hope the 159 is spot on.
There must be loads of greyheads like me so perhaps Alfa has spotted a market!!!!!!
I live in Shropshire by the way.
