After years of drooling over Alfas I just couldn't afford/fit into I needed to change my car. So I took the plunge and swapped my mk5 Golf GTI for a beautiful 159 1.9JTDM Lusso in Oltremare Blue, black leather, bluetooth (not B&M sadly) Bose and 18" spokes a fortnight ago. One week older than the GTI and 3k more miles, but the dealer gave me a cheque to go with the car
I have now decided that luxury, looks and my licence were a preferable choice. She may not have the power of the GTI but the handling is as good as makes no odds in the back lanes and round town she is giving me nearly the same mpg as the Golf did on a long run.
Anyway enough preamble I have a few queries that I want to ask other owners so watch out for me plaguing the tech forum in the near future.
PS before anyone asks my username tag has followed me round various websites and message boards for years I'm just kind of attached to it.
Ex-159 Owner, will be back to Alfa in the future.
Abarth 500 well it's got 2 A's and is Italian its all good
