Always wanted one and now I've got him
(yes he's definitely a he). Got a brand spanking new black 159 1.9 JTDm yesterday and drove back from Yorkshire today.
Bought him fron Piccadilly Motors in Knaresborough and dealt with David whose a member of this forum. I can't recommend them, and David in particular, enough. Nothing was too much trouble and I'm now seriously thinking of taking a long weekend in Yorkshire in about a year and getting the service done there also.
As for Vito (sad I know but he has a name!
) he's fantastic. Already excellent performance and handling and he's not loosened up yet. Fuel consumption on the drive home appears really good.
I can now join in discussions on AO as a real Alfisti. Thanks to everyone here for helping in my planning.
