When a 159 is polished up (just did this at the weekend) there is no better looking car on the road this side of a Ferrari (imo), I'd be biased though as I have had mine from new since 07 and enjoyed every minute of owning it. Bella Machina, best of luck with her

Fair play, got my first Alfa 3 months ago and loving it, there's no other mass-produced car that comes close for style and character IMO well wear

Thanks all,

I have a small problem already!

When I do a cold start a message comes up on the dash saying ABS disconnected contact... disapears to quick to read the rest of it.

It's going back to the garage next week to get NCT'd so get them to check it out then.

Anybody ever hear of this? ABS is something to do with your brakes so presume this is a serious problem?

Hopefully it's nothing serious, have you tried doing a search or asking in the Tech Lounge Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider - Alfa Romeo Forum

Best to bring it to someone to plug in the diagnostic cable and read any faults in the system.

Might even be worth bringing it back to Joe Duffy and get them to get a diagnostic done.

Apart from it being under warranty, You only got it 2 weeks ago. Might be some good will there

If I bring it over to Tracta in Blanch it will cost me for them to look at it. Makes sense for Joe Duffys to look at it and whatever it needs they will put it in to fix it.
