New to alfa and considering a 159 Ti 2.4
I'm currently driving a 2008 BMW 320D msport - it's a great all around package - great drive, comfortable but not soft, well build, looks great and great bang for buck. I'm considering a change and was struggling to find a replacement within reasonable cost until I saw a 159 Ti - lovely looking car both inside and out - would be looking to import a 2.4 from the UK.
Problem is that I know nothing about the 159 or alfa in general and given the historical reputation I was hoping someone could help me with some practical feedback - build quaility, reliability of engine, running gear, etc, any known issues. Also, what are they like to drive, performance of the 2.4, etc. I can only find 2 1.9 TI's in Ireland so doubt I will get a chance to drive a 2.4 before I would purchase and so obviously want as much feedback as possible to help my decision.
Thanks in advance
