Newbie from Kent (159ti and GT interest)
Thought it a good place to start! My name is Simon and I live in Kent - Have been a long time admirer of many Alfas, but I'm not an owner. Specifically looking to get into either a GT or a 159ti saloon. Have been looking around the forums and it seems that many people have discussed the same questions I'm getting my head around: are the petrol offerings too underpowered in these models vs do I really want a diesel powered 'weekend' car as they seem to be targeted at higher-mileage users/people who want the tuning options of a turbo ..
Reality is I want a GT 3.2 but having looked at one and had it inspected, the issues concerned me somewhat.
Anyways, looks to be a great forum and looking forward to joining the club. I have been signed up for a while now, but hoping to participate more once the right car is found. Obviously if anyone has any personal experience of petrol GT's v petrol (and maybe 2.4 diesel) 159ti's, I'd appreciate your thoughts.
