Alfa Romeo 159

alfa 159 new 2 me

Hi folks

Thought i would join in the forum fun as, after much to-ing and fro-ing, i have bought a 159 ti. Only had it a few weeks, but enjoying the quality and feel. Previous cars include a 155 and before that an already well used alfetta gtv (before the kids). So the change in feel and quality is certainly there (as is the weight). Anyway, after a ford focus (sorry for swearing) as my daily commuter i am back in alfaland.

festive cheer

Welcome back to the land of alfa i also had a focus, did you find it the dullest car to drive and also the horrible green dashboard lights drove you mad on a long journey?

Alfa Romeo 159

Yeah I found the focus fits the "worthy but dull" category. Dash an artistic disaster and strange steering wheel leathery stuff. Plus never got comfy and no footrest. Shocking. People in general criticise alfa for driving position but I always found both alfetta gtv and 155 comfortable. ,maybe I have the legs of a gorilla and the arms of a chimpanzee .

Anyway finding the 159 comfortable, but not a lot of storage space for my bananas .
