First time Alfa owner - 159 2.4JTDm

Hi everyone

I've been in the VAG scene for a few years now, bored of them now and fancied something a little more uncommon. Everyone told me not to buy an Alfa as they're rubbish, badly built and will just break. None of these people have actually owned one, and comparing this car to my old E46 BMW 3series it's miles ahead. I absolutley love the car, the look and the way it drives are all very good.

My only complaint is the turbo lag, but the car is booked in to have a discrete DPf delete, egr turn-off and remap tomorrow by Avon Tuning which should help. But once it's spooled it pulls very well already.

Let's hope I can prove all my friends wrong and enjoy life with a reliable 159...

Thanks everyone. They are 18" wheels but look like TI wheels. The chap said he paid over a grand for them new, gulp! Having a few issues with my intro into the world of Italian car ownership. Injector leaking and a rear window regulator knackered. But I paid good money for the car so I'm not too concerned if I have to spend a little bit to sort a few issues. New injector should be here in the morning.
