Another new Alfa owner
Just bought my first ever Alfa Romeo - a Stromboli gray 159 1.9jtdm lusso. It's a 2008 but must be pre facelift as it still has the odd button in the roof console to open the boot. Just over 79k miles but has had a lot of work done recently including timing belt, clutch & flywheel, intake manifold, egr valve and a few other bits. I only really got it as I also have a Jaguar S type R which uses far too much fuel to take up and down the motorway. Must admit I'm quite impressed so far.
There are a few things to look at including a rip in the drivers seat which seems to be fairly common and a broken headlight height switch but overall it's in good condition. Already thinking of mods though. I'd like to get it mapped to remove the dpf and egr valve and hopefully improve the economy as my sons Honda Civic diesel seems quicker and more economical.
