I'm taking delivery of a 159ti on 1st September and can't wait. I came close to owning an Alfa (156) once before but my then boss vetoed it because of "reliability issues". Now I'm the boss and I can choose what I like!
I did a fair bit of research - looked at Audi, Saab, BMW, Volvo... Some were good, some were awful, but none of them gave me the same feeling as the Alfa.
I was going to opt for the 3.2 V6 but it was over budget and the company car tax was huge. So I've gone with the 2.2 JTS. Maybe next time...
The dealer (who was incredibly helpful) tells me that they're working on a 4 litre V8 version of the 159 - now that would be fun.
Anyway - looking forward to driving it and I'm sure I'll have lots of questions for you all.
All the truly great men are dead - and I'm not feeling too well myself.
