Wave Hello from a new 159 driver

Hi all,

About a year ago I test drove a 2.4 Brera, loved the car but just couldn't have lived with something that small. The car was gorgeous but no human could fit behind me, so it becomes a 3 seater car with a small boot!

Anyway, I went for a BMW 330Ci convertible at the time, but recently needed to update my diesel daily driver. Naturally I'm shocked I didn't think of the 159 last year, but I've done the decent thing and bought a 2.4 manual Sportwagon Lusso on an '08 plate.

Honestly - I couldn't be happier with it, such a joy to own!

I've been lurking on the for a few weeks, trying to understand the usual 'characteristics' of the car - it is my first foray into Alfa ownership after all! Just wanted to say that the forum is great, I've learned loads already - Thanks!

Hey guys,

Thanks for the welcome.

I've been a bit frustrated with what seems a typical poor starting problem. Thinking about extending the signal to the glow plugs to try and help that.

But not today!
