After many years of driving mainly German motors, I have decided to take the plunge and go Italian!! I am looking to purchase my first Alfa and have decided on a 159. The front end is stunning! I really like the overall look of the Brera, but I want a 4 door.
I currently have a 2002 Mercedes C240, which is a good car, but it's getting on a bit and costs a lot to run (approx 19/20MPG!!).
I havent taken any 159's for a test drive yet, but can probably afford around a 07/08 plate.
Is there anything I should look out for when viewing/test driving?
Is there much difference in performance between the 1.9JTDM and 2.4JTDM?
And on spec, is there much in it between the Turismo and the Lusso? Ideally i'd like a Ti, but it may be slightly out of my price range!!
Thanks in advance for your help
