Looks like a good car Wynne, I know what you mean though about the GT. I've started ferrying about more people - 5 adults in a GT doesn't work. The thing about getting an LE though is that it'll be everything you wanted your last 159 to be. Of course the daft thing about this is you'll miss your GT, and I don't think you'll find anything like it again - other than another GT. but it is more about time and place - I loved mine, it was great while I had it but we've all moved on. They won't build another though!
When I say an ipod adapter, it is not the whole cable.
I bought the carlinks cable and it worked through the headunit with steering controls etc, but it didn't charge my 4th gen ipod, so I had to buy and adapter to get the ipod to charge when plugged in.
Its not a lot bigger than a 50p piece, has an input socket and an output. Sits between the ipid and the cable.
Would love to know how the 1.9 in the 159 compared to its installation in the GT. Am toying with exactly the same change myself, but when I let head rule heart the GT really is all the car I need, plus Mrs has her Accord so we don't really need 2 big cars.. However still want a 159 . . . . .
There's a lovely 2.4Ti in red for sale locally to me which I am tempted with - even though it's an auto - but would it be perhaps daft moving from my car having covered 60K to a 2.4 with 78K on the clock. Wanted to buy CJRomeos one but was for sale too soon for me alas . . . . . . . .
Stesco. I went from a 2007 Gt with 78K on the clock to a 2009 159 with 91K on the clock! Not regretting it one bit if I am honest.
Loved the GT when the going was good. Just couldn't live with it as an everyday car.
Hi all, new member here. This is my 1st post despite reading a lot of threads over the years.
So I've just bought my 1.6 TS and she's on std suspension. I want her lowered by 20mm or so and handling improved. I'm not very fussy about ride. Acceptable will do.
I've been looking at cheap options...
Hello, I am trying to fit a new serpentine belt onto a 150HP 2.0 TS engine with air condition.
But I have stumbled into a problem, the belt is too loose. I have bought a 6PK1965 belt, is it the right one?
Just an idea.:)
To have a thread where we can share what we have done or bought or considered for our beloved cars "today" thread.

so I’ve had the GT for a week or so now, and the only major project that it looks like I’m going to have soon, and am a little afraid of is replacing the alternator.
I can hear the bearings on the existing unit, so need to plan a replacement soon.
my questions are;
1. Which alternator to...
