Re: Alfa Romeo 159 Limited Edition

Hmmm strange first post

Ben if you are a dealer you need to get in contact with 'Alfaowner' to get your identity confirmed before making posts like this

Oh and this should be in the 159/Brera lounge not in Announcements & Comments and this lounge is for that type of stuff about the forum not a specific model

Re: Alfa Romeo 159 Limited Edition

its OTR price is only £22,645 and you can get it on contract hire at £289.

I really doubt its the end of the line! the 159 has only been here for about 2 and half years! do you remeber the Spider L.E? there only making 250 of these 159's probably in line with the New James Bond film.

the car will look great just like the Ti does, but at a great price!

hmmmm, is this just a UK dealer special edition then

when are they due

that seems a good price for what the car is specced at, the same Ti is around £25k I think.

By the way you should register with AO to confirm your dealer status as Nomad suggested or take your dealer contact details off your sig. if this is a personal account

No worries Ben but you did include your company details in your signature

Everyone here likes to hear about new Alfa models - well actually there are some for who new models are the spawn of satan - so that was good but there are specific rules here regarding adverts (and advertisers) which is what your initial post did seem to be IMO !! (Given the fact that your surname is the same as the dealership where you work )

You'll get used to the site in time and will also find it's a good place to be on the whole !!

Re: Alfa Romeo 159 Limited Edition

It seems to be better equipped than the ti, and yet itís 3k cheaper. What is the reason for this?

Re: Alfa Romeo 159 Limited Edition

Thread moved. Sound like a special. The original Ti's were "limited editions" so I was a tad gutted when they brought them into the range (albeit and a reduced specification and for more £££).

Quite a bit Mike, they don't have Sports Seats, Heated Seats, Side Skirts (from what I can tell) Split Rear Seats, they do have Blue & Me Nav though and are the same price as a standard Lusso.

A TI is only £23645 and does have more spec on it so not really £3k cheaper. I think the idea of the LE is to offer something that is good value for money in the current climate which can only be a good thing as everyone is looking for a good deal at the moment

Re: Alfa Romeo 159 Limited Edition

According to the Cloverleaf site its the same spec car as the Bond movie...hence is a Bond tie in special edition....only available in the same black as the cars in the film.

but pricing a Ti to have upgraded leather and the Nav and the Auto wipers, mirror and lights comes to nearly £25k I think.

TBH I might be interested, I like the Ti looks but not the interior (too dark for me) or the silver wing mirrors (too bling for me).

I'd like some more details on the contract prices.............
