159 sportwagon

New 159 owner from Sheffield

Before the Alfa i had a BMW 330ci, i needed an estate to carry my dog and after having bm's for the last 8 years i thought i'd have a change. After going to see a 159 i knew it was the car for me, but just not the one i'd looked at because it was a bit scruffy. This is what led me to drive from sheff to maidenhead to look at Alfaaid.
Viewing the car, test driving and the negotiation process was an enjoyable experience and i'd recommend Alfaaid to anyone that asked, shame its a bit far for servicing mot's etc.

The car is a 58 reg 159 2.4 Ti sportwagon with 51k, it has the EGR blanked and DPF removed along with a tune. I'm having the car dyno'd next week to see what power its running. I've only had the car for 2 days but i'm delighted with it, still can't believe the stunning looks of both the exterior and interior.

The reason i've had to change the bm is because when i got the dog i bought an mx5 to cart him around, i've gone a bit beserk with modifying it so its become more track car than dog car.
Some pics of the Mazda. From this...
To this....

And here's my new 'road' car

If you've bother reading all that, thanks.
Your forum was a good part of me having the confidence to put my money into an Alfa, so thankyou.

Looking good. I will look for you around Sheffield. You may see me I have a black face lift 147 Ti with anthracite refurbed wheels. I can recommend Northern Alfa Performance in Doncaster for servicing and tuning. Enjoy!
