Took my 159 1.8 MPI for its first long blast today

Hello all.
Drove my 159 for its first long blast today, took me two hours to get from Castletroy in Limerick to the Red Cow park and ride in two hours. Really happy with the way it rides on our bad roads, Plenty of poke from the engine (even though most people dislike it here) and loads of power for overtaking. Used a third of a tank. Cruised away at 120 to 140kmh no problem.

Cool - glad you enjoy it. Regardless of what people think of the engine, the car is still a dream!
