Been going round in circles with the idea "do I buy a 159 or not" for 6 months or so now. I am the type of person that once I say I want it (car wise and within reason!) I then normally go and buy one!
So some how I have managed to fend off the urge for 6 months, but meh. Not going to happen so here I am.
I would class myself as a car enthusiast, but that said I have never owned a Alfa. When I do it looks like its going to be the 2.4 diesel
I would be replacing my daily car, a 2003 Skoda Fabia vRS with the 159. I gather I will miss the mpg (book figure is 15mpg less than the Fabia) and in fairness to the Fabia as it has 200hp, I can't imagine the 159 being any quicker.
What it will be by the looks of things is a lot nicer place to sit, hopefully comfier, of course bigger which isn't a need to be fair. But well maybe a little more grown up and looks more professional. (getting old!)
Forum looks good, going to throw myself into the meets area and 159 area mostly I think.
If anyone knows of any nice 159's going, ideally the 2.4 but I could manage the 1.9 too, let me know!
