Thumbs Up I've only gone and done it now...

Ordered an Alfa Red 159 2.4 Ti that is.
Can't wait, my wife is expecting me to be a nightmare until arrives, and tbh she's probably right.

Re: I've only gone and done it now...

I would have so loved a Red one (not the 2.4 though). Is it going to be one of the revamped factory new ones? If so, what's the spec sheet look like?

Re: I've only gone and done it now...

I've been quoted a mid to end of May delivery, though I would expect that will slip to June what with the factory still being closed. It will be an 08 model, so I've elected not to have the elec seats or the auto wipers/lights/mirror, but everything else remains the same as last years Ti spec. The salesman hadn't heard anything about the rumoured weight reduction or any other changes though. I went for the 2.4 because with the miles I do the 2.2 JTS works out at least £500 more per year despite the difference in purchase price. I've also got a thing for the 2.4JTDm sound, and I just love the torque

When my dad bought his first Alfa (my current 156) he wanted a red one, but decided not to wait as the dealer had a silver one in stock right away. I inherited the car when he died nearly four years ago, and feel an enormous amount of guilt that I am replacing it (obviously not quite enough to stop me, but I did choke up a bit on the test drive). My choice of colour is in his honour, and imo Alfa Red is the best colour for a 159. And my wife has already confirmed I am being a nightmare.
