    This is my new car, she’s a 2.4 159 sportwagon Ti, and my first car at 18 years old. Picked her up from Birmingham and she’s now back safe on the drive in Tunbridge Wells. Amazing on the motorway, Absolutely hilarious fun to drive and looks like nothing else on the road

  4. Assistance Needed Replacing MAF Sensor In My 156 Sportwagon

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello Alfa heads, My 156 Sportwagon has suffered with being a bit sluggish since I’ve owned it. It is 16 years old now and hasn’t had the easiest life (nor has it had the hardest), but I’d expect a little more oomph out of a 2.4 turbo diesel. After being scanned at the garage the boost...

  6. Sportwagon Rear Seat Squab..

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Tried to remove it this weekend but it's stuck, violence isn't working so any pointers appreciated! The two locating loops are free of the plastic sockets but it's caught on something under the base, the squab is slightly forward and it won't drop back down into the (broken) plastic sockets...

It has been maintained by Alfaworkshop as with my other Alfa’s. Anyone interested please PM me. Hard to gauge value...

  9. Any Stelvio owners jump from a 159 Sportwagon?

    Alfa Stelvio
    I was wondering if there any Stelvio owners and get their feedback on how the transition from one car to the other. I am still not sure on the Stelvio or the SUV jump that most manufacturers want everyone to go to. What would you say the pro's and con's owning one. I've owned four 159...

    Hi all, I'm new to the forums but have been interested in purchasing a second car for a while now, specifically an Alfa 159 2.0 JTDM Sportwagon. I've been looking around and getting insurance quotes but haven't had anything too affordable. I'm 21, been driving since 17. Had 3 years no claims...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider 2.4 5 cylinders was serviced every 10k and along with the 6 speed manual perfect. The sump has a hole in it. So I switched off the engine straight away. The car hit the curb in the rain last. I just a hedge. I would say you want 2...

    Introduce Yourself
    Hi all, from the South Coast of the UK. I'm in a village called Clanfield, just North of Portsmouth in Hampshire. Joined the forum a few days ago when I picked up a 1995 156 Sportwagon Veloce 1.9 16V JTD. I've brought it as something to tinker with, different to my Landrover and old Ducati...
  14. 159 Sportwagon Tailgate Push Button

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Been having a little trouble with it the last few weeks, some days it works, others not. So tonight I had a look at it (whilst the trim was off from replacing the rear wiper). Having managed to get it off easily enough I noticed that the plastic around one of the fixing bolts was cracked and...

  16. TBI Sportwagon, are there any in UK?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My lovely 159 2.4 JTDM will fall foul of the the London pollution charge when the area is extended to the north and south circular next year. One cure might be to trade in for a TBI model. But I have a Sportwagon and I need the load space. I have not seen adverts for TBI Sportwagon's for sale...
  17. The demise of my beloved Sportwagon :(

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Well, after 5 years of happy and (almost) problem-free motoring with my Carbonio black Alfa Sportwagon it seems that the journey may have come to an end. She was due her MoT at the beginning of the month so a (now former) friend offered to give her the once over for me, then do the MoT himself...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello everyone, Need some advice. I am looking to buy an Alfa 159 Sportwagon, I have wished for one since the car first came out. My budget is limited to 3-4000 EUR right now. The 2.0 JTDM, 1.75 TBi and 3.2 JTS seem to be more expensive. Cars that fit my budget seem to be made with very few...
  20. Sportwagon boot light

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Ultimately I'm replacing the Alfa badge...... To get the interior plastic off inside the boot lid I've undone all the star bolts I can see but it's still fixed at the location where the boot light is. .. How do I remove the boot light? I'm guessing there's one more star bolt hidden there...
