Alfa 159


Have just bought a black 159 3.2. The dealer has had the car for three weeks trying to fix a tappet-like noise audible when the car is hot, together with a rattle that resists detection. Added to that the CD changer didn't work when new, and there's no advertised iPod connection.

A BMW is looking good.

Re: DACruse

Welcome to the forum...your car's faults are not exactly the end of the world are they...certainly not enough to make me buy a bemmer?

Just drive the car and revel in the V6
