Like to think it'll be a 2.4 with remap but in reality I'll bet it is a 1.9 (and maybe) a remap

Wallet/reality vs Fantasy/longing

The 1.9's not that bad. Many of us on the Alfa Experience thought it to be smoother than the 2.4 and quieter bizarrely.

My 2.4's a winner and getting better by the day without the remap.

Re: 159 1.9/2.4 JTD's

I'd defintely go for the 2.4. I've driven a couple of 1.9's and imo they're underpowered for such a big chunky car. The 2.4 on the other hand feels very powerful. In fact I may actually go for the 2.4 when I change my car next year - a Ti, wallet permitting. Never thought I'd ever seriously consider a diesel but I want more ooomph but not sure if I fancy the bar bills of a V6. Still not 100% sure though, may stick with petrol.

As for a remap, it's something I'd consider but not straight away - maybe after I'd had the car a while and had a chance to get a good feel for it

If I was planning to get one, I'd go see
a doctor as there'd obviously be something
wrong with me.

If I had to get one as a company car or on pain of death
or something I'd get the new 210BHP 2.4 one.
