Re: Facelift 159 and GT Blackline 3

It probably has been posted before hence the lack of replies but I've not seen it as yet so the post is usefeul to me. Add the 147 Ducati to the list. I'm just hoping this one is coming to the UK as I will be very, very tempted: -

Re: Facelift 159 and GT Blackline 3

Mmmm...seems strange they say the 159 gets a new pair of 1.9 diesels, when they have exactly the same power output!
Wheres the 170/190bhp 1.9 diesels then?
Nice to see the Q2 appearing though.

As for the GT, the 170bhp 1.9 JTD appears to have its power cutting in even earlier now at just 3,750.
That sport button also appears not to 'boost power output', but instead it sharpens the throttle response - in other words even without the button engaged, the engine still puts out 170bhp???

Re: Facelift 159 and GT Blackline 3

It says electronic Q2, so probably some pfaffing around with the anti-slip, rather than an LSD
