Purchased 159 ti 2.4JTD in Alfa Red 4 weeks ago. Had many favourable comments about it's looks and some typically sarcastic about problems I may or may not have from non-owners. Very happy with it so far but noticing big difference in fuel consumption (more)from my previous VW engined Octavia 2.0 TDI. Still, I didn't buy the Alfa for economy more to try something different from the norm and because it looks superb and is great to drive. Unfortunately kerbed (slightly) a couple of the alloys so will get those refurbed at earliest opportunity.
