  3. Should I buy a 159 1,9 JTD with a lot of kilometers on it?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi guys :-) Soon my girlfriend and I will be needing a "new" car. Because we're buying a new house, the budget for the car is rather limited. I still would like to buy a nice car that I'm happy with, and for me it's fine that it's older and have some km on it. On paper a 10-ish year old 159 1,9...
