Well here goes!

Im currently on the hunt for a 159 Ti for use as a family car, i spotted the 159's while randomly searching on ebay and once i looked into them i'm smitten!

I have not seen one up close yet as there don't seem to be any decent cars for sale around me and I am not going to waste my time looking at cars people can't be bothered to advertise correctly !

My budget is too tight currently to stretch to exactly what i want (White 2.0ltr D 159 sportwagon Ti with sport 50/50 interior)

So it looks like in going to be buying a saloon 1.9 as a stop gap and familiarisation car to be traded up as soon as funds permit.

I currently have a company vehicle to use and i also have a weekend toy in the guise of a Track prep 450BHP nissan 200sx.

Anyway that me, If anyone knows about any decent cars within my area then please don't hesitate to give me a nudge in the right direction.
I have already discovered superleggera near Oxford, and have spoken with them regarding some vehicles they currently have in stock.

Time is my major factor as i don't seem to have much of it these days with 2 young boys!

Oh....... The Username is one that was 'gifted' to me by a head mod on the SXOC! Its one I use on all the forums i'm a member of and yes it is spelt that way!

Love the user name. Assume you are near Oxford (?) but you have completed your location so it's difficult to tell.

Welcome to AO.

Well the game has changed a little and after more searching, i have decided its all in for a 2.0ltr sportwagon Ti, instead of a stopgap of a 1.9.

I have missed 3 so far as they seem to sell very quick!

If anyone knows of one then please let me know, im looking on ebay and autotrader mainly as they seem to have the best cars so far.....

Well i have found one! All things being well i should be in the driver's seat this time next week!

Its going to be a bit of a treck to get too it from here BUT if it looks as good in the flesh as it does in the add then its going to be worth it.

Keep an eye out for a proper introduction post with pictures ;)

Well its all off, in my haste to secure the car i wrongly assumed all 2.0ltr Ti were the 170BHP engine!
I now know different and that they actually do a 135BHP version too(who in their right mind would want that engine?)!

So no harm done and the search continues.....

I was almost tempted by a car from motorhub aka Keighley then did some research and im not even going to waste my time calling that one lol
