It drives a hell of a lot better than my last 159, thats for sure.

I'm more than pleased with it, its better than I thought.

Very nive CJ - Glad you're happy with it. But you should have taken her outfro a drive before taking the piccies to get the rust off the discs

I guess I'll have to get a drive in one - I love my lusso with the only complaints about fuel consumption and road noise. Can't imagine the Ti is quieter on those wheels.

Re: My 159Ti (slightly) better pics..

Road noise isnt really much different to my errrr 16's.

Maybe its a wagon thing?

The weather's filthy, it was rusty discs or minging paint!

BTW the 210 engine has a different code number to the 200, I know you were interested in what the difference was.

The mats are clean - and incredibly thick!

Looks fine! I thought you had a Lusso 1.9 JTD though?

Good point about the wagon thing, although I've driven an SW with 17's and it was a bit quieter than mine.

Tis indeed a nice car.
I am going to sound really ignorant here
The Ti has twin Exhausts, do all Ti's have twin exhausts or just the V6's?

Re: My 159Ti (slightly) better pics..

A stunning looking machine, good luck with it ... the 19" alloys, lowered ride height and special interior make the Ti a very appealing propostion...I test drove all varients of the 159 and came to the conclusion that the 2.2JTS is the best suited engine.. twin pipes set off the rear end really well...btw the Stromboli Grey is a good choice of colour and it was my 2nd favourite choice after Aurora Blu the colour I finally went for.

The old car was a specced up Turismo, not a Lusso, didnt like the wheels, or the leather in the Lusso. (at least without adding the winter pack)

If the Ti had a fabric option, I would have plumped for that, dont really like leather.
