Hello

Does anyone have the Alfa 159 manual saloon 50-75mph figures for the 1.9jtdm (150bhp) and the 2.4jtdm

Thanks in advance

50-75 is a funny increment, haven;t seen any figurs for that - but here are the Autocar figures for various increments for the 1.9JTDM.

0-60 : 9.5
0-100 : 30.1
30-70 (through gears) : 9.4
50-70 (in top, 6 speeders are disadvantaged in this test, compared to 5 speeders) : 10.8

Top speed 124

Look close enough to the original 8v 2.4 JTD Alfa 156 figures actually.

For comparison the well regarded 1.9 GT JTD's figures are below, obviously a much lighter car:

0-60 : 9.0
0-100 : 26.8
30-70 (through gears) : 8.8
50-70 (in top) : 10.8

Cheers,
TB

Presumably you mean either the 8v 1.9 or the 10v 2.4 :confused: :lol:

Blimey. I knew the 1 series and even 3 series 2.0d were quick but whenever I saw a 520d on the road I always thought what a peasant! That thing must be slooowowww. But crickey! 0-62 in 8.6 and still 139 top wack with a car that weighs as much as a 159 with ONLY 163 bhp.....you have got to hand it to the Germans. It makes the Alfa diesels look pitifull:( .

Exactly!!

My Contract Hire Company car list has been trimmed down to:

Alfa 159 1.9Jtdm Lusso, Metallic, 18" Hole, Beige/Black interior.
(Driven 2.4 but still waiting for test drive in 1.9Jtdm!)

or

BMW 520d se,
I have test driven this and love the performance but interior is soooooooo basic and 5 Series is is due for a facelift.

F:confused: :confused:

Just saw on PH that :
"The new BMW 5 Series range starts production in March 2007, with prices ranging from £26,980 OTR (520d SE Saloon) to £49,805 OTR (550i M Sport Touring)."

With a bit of luck, ordering it now would mean a delivery in March of a facelifted version
Not that I would EVER advise to buy a 5er as opposed to a 159! But I would push your company to offer the 2.4 instead of a 1.9.
