Aspiring to 159

Hello all

Hi all,

What to say?

Not currently an Alfa owner, but am seriously contemplating a 159 Ti Saloon. By "contemplating", I mean "getting" once I can sort out the finance.

My circumstances have changed (some good, some not so good) and I now tend to have a few extra quid in the bank at the end of the month. Before I get used to spare cash and start squandering it, I think it's time to upgrade the motor. Needs to be prestige, needs to be European (I'm a snob), needs to be special and there's nothing else like an Alfa to tick those boxes. (3-series and Audi are ubiquitous and driven by ubiqui******s, new c-class is just boring). Why the need to compare? There is nothing in this class that looks as sexy as the Alfa.

I count Alfa's on the way in to work and I don't think I see more than 3 on any one day, and it's rare to see a 159 from one week to the next.

Live in the North East of Scotland. There's no dealer in these parts, so maybe that's the reason they're so rare up here. Mind you the previous dealer in Aberdeen was Arnold Clark. There's a new one opening in Perth soon (Western) and I've got a pal who knows the dealer up in Inverness and is trying to see what he can do for me up there.

Also had a look at Alfa lusso (is that a can o' worms I hear being opened?).

Anyone had any experience or got any advise? (Not on Alfa lusso as I've already searched the forums!)

really busy at work and will be traveling quite a bit over the next month, so I've no idea how long it will take me to get this sorted out. I tend to obsess about things and the prospect of getting this car is occupying my entire being at the moment!

Re: Hello all

welcome mate, I don't think anyone here has a 159TI (yet!), so you may be the first. There are several 159 owners on A0 now, so you should get some useful replies soon.

I have seen the new C-Class in the flesh. For the life of me, I can't understand why they modeled it on the previous generation Honda Accord. It's quite nice inside through, although the back's a bit cramped.
