Hi Guys, thanks for the welcome. Well, I went and bought a 159 Lusso on a 09 plate with 99k on the clock for £5075. Just couldn,t help myself. It was gorgeous in its red livery. Couple of electrical issues such as passenger windscreen wiper not working, reverse sensor not working and boot strut requiring adjustment. One stamp missing from the alleged full Alfa Service History so I have asked for evidence of that service and also that the cambelt and water pump have been changed in the last 30k (thanks for the advice on that). That aside it drives wonderfully smoothly with one company owner. Can,t wait to have a blast on the motorway when I pick it up on Saturday, oh and a full twelve month mot. Have to say that the price of the tyres scared me initially but what the hell.
