159 Ti SW

My First Alfa (159 Ti Sportwagon)

I've been on the lookout for a practical(ish) family car for a while now, and how hard is it to find a car with any kind of character?!? I'm not into the Germanese never-break-but-just-a-boring-car thing. I eventually came to the 159, and was lucky to get one of the last Ti (special edition) versions in the UK in exactly the spec I wanted, which I picked up at the end of last week.

So far I couldn't be happier with the car; it's a 159 Ti Sportwagon, 2.4D Q4. It feels extremely well put together, is pretty luxurious and has plenty of toys inside. It rides very well and is fairly quiet, much more so than I expected, considering it handles splendidly - the sports suspension and 4 wheel drive giving a very nice balance in my opinion (it doesn't feel a heavy car). It's not super quick, but is decent enough and will only get quicker with miles (I've still got my eye on a P-Box though ). And it hasn't broken down yet!

Cheers,
Andy

Just checked the photo's out and it's a great looking car. Think my 166 replacement will have to be a 159 Sportwagon Ti... Not for a while though!

Cheers
