Mine will be going soon, I know they are sought after, so if someone is looking in the new year, let me know and I will contact you nearer the time.

its a 2008 57 plate with 53K on the clock in Stromboli grey.

Its a 6 speed Manual LE version with the power fold mirrors, memory seats/mirrors and visibility pack on top of the usual mega Ti spec.


Drivers seat recovered late last year under warranty, so no splits or shininess
Water manifold plastic plug replaced with stainless steel (before it burst)
PAS pump replaced, recent flush and replace with G1/R (Green) Fluid
Never had an engine fault error lamp up or went into limp home
Juddering cured in 2010 with a complete revised cylinder head.
Glow plugs just replaced
FSH from dealer and specialists
Mine since new, but originally on contract hire, so 2 owners on log book
AC just regassed following a pipe replacement.
Rear screen came out to seal the common water leak.
Windscreen replaced - no creaks
Wheels refurbed earlier this year, only minor scuff on edge of 1
Brand new Ti sill covers here ready to fit
Absolutely no damage round the key slot! (always keep the soft side to the dash)
Luxury deep pile OE (£100) mats fitted
Its under warranty till February and you can extend this - I have the paperwork
A few stone chips up front and barely perceptible compression crack to the bumper paint.

At this mileage, drives like new.

Let me know if interested at around £11K, traders punt these out at about £12.5K

Has it had its belts and pump done fella?
Not at 55,000 miles mate, no. Its 6K till the next scheduled service, and the belt isnt technically due till 90K, but I would get it done at before that myself, either at the next, or next again.

It had the cylinder head replaced about 25K ago and one would like to think that they replaced the belt at this time, unfortunately as it was a warranty job, they didnt reveal the full list of parts used, so the belt etc. may or may not have been changed

At the last service I paid to have the EGR, manifold and 'throttle' body cleaned out.

PM me here, or where the ad is if youre interested, I can take a deposit to hold it if you want, any questions, just ask.

I would keep it if I could, just the company car poicy, I need to spend the allowance on something under 4 years old.

If I hadn't 'invested' so much in my 1.9 I'd be very tempted! Then gain, if I hadn't got the 1.9 I probably wouldn't be here in the first place....!

Anyone want a 1.9 Ti? We could start a complicated chain like moving house"

A chain eh?!

2.4 210 is quite a different machine to the 1.9, Ive had both - your 1.9 might be worth more than mine anyway being a later model.

Red and black (had a black 159, red 156) look smashing when new it must be said, but look a bit sad with a a few miles and chips, especially in black on the bumper and rea arches.

Only tool half an hour to get it like that, had multiple coats of ZFX activated Zaino Z2 pro on the paint since new and has G3 nano protection on the wheels, I think its above average (well I would say that...!)

I had same work done to the head/ inlet manifold etc on mine under 3rd year warranty. Dealer gave me breakdown of works done once paperwork all sorted with alfa. All belts/ cam kit done as a matter of course ( I made contribution to have water pump done as well), and whilst thats no g'tee its the same with yours my dealer said they would never put same belts back on pretty much regardless of age. I got the impression that once they get authorisation on the repair they will do whatever is possible and go to town on what they can claim for.

Might be wrth going back to dealer and asking for confirmation what was done ( will help sale possibly).

By the way, car looks sweet, im sure someone out there will give it a good home and the right price. Best of luck!!:thumbs:

Thanks chief, I have tried this with the dealer, their records arent very good, its in today for an MOT, so I will try again. Mine only had 28K on it at the time, so I wasnt fussed whether they did the WP or not.
