Im Sorry! Change of plan!

I posted up here that i was coming back to the fold but sadly i couldn't find a decent 159 Ti for 14K. I can tell you, i hunted high and low. My insurance have now paid out and i have opted for a Lexus instead.

Im still planning to attend one of this years meet though.

Hope you enjoy your new car. What Lexus did you buy?

I test drove a GS430 yesterday. I have to confess I am really tempted by it!

Thanks Stuart, I bought a 2009 IS 250 Sport SR with 13k on the clock. Comes with Multimedia package, Sat Nav, Reverse Camera, Mark Levison HiFi.

That looks very nice. I wish Lexus put a 2.5l into the IS200 right from the start!

Hope you enjoy it.

I'm glad to know its not just me who can't find a decent Alfa on the market

Thanks mate. I test drove two 159s but with both them over 50k on the clock, i really need to get something that will do 2,000 miles a month without issues. Thats where my decision lay. I offered two Alfa dealers 15k for two Ti's window prices of 16K but none of them were interested. Ive already got an IS 200 that my wife uses and its been bulletproof!
