Advice on buying Alfa 159

Hi guys

Was looking for some advice if you don't mind?

I am looking at buying my first Alfa Romeo which I'm really excited about but want some advice before I buy the wrong one.

My first choice is an Alfa 159 2006 1.9 jtdm 16v turismo. I love the look of this car it's what made it my first choice. I have found one for sale at such a reasonable price however......
The car is currently on 181.000 miles, but has be confirmed as motorway miles. The Alfa has had 1 owner from new who is also an Alfa enthusiast.

The car has just had a major service which cost the current owner 300 and the the cambelt/timing belt replaced in 2013.

Would you jump at this bargain or avoid? All advice an feedback welcome

Thank you

Hi :hi:

Welcome to AO

Have a look at the buyers guide in the 159 section - (Definitive 159/ Brera Buyers Guide)

Be aware tho the Turismo was the base spec...
