Hello fellow alfisti,

Is there anyone on here that's near cousley wood, Wadhurst near Tunbridge Wells?

There's an alfa specialist called SDR Auto's that's selling an alfa 159 TI 2.4 JTDM and wondered if someone in that neck of the woods could go along and have a look for an independent point of view. The car is advertised on auto trader for £5595 but it looks alittle scruffy and the drivers seat bolster has worn somewhat. It's also covered 117k not that this puts me off if it's been maintained properly, I've yet to call the garage as I would like someone else's opinion (who is closer than me), who can view the car close up etc.

Gut feeling is that it's alittle over priced but for the right money could be a go'er.

Send me a PM if any one fancies a look on my behalf.

Cheers

It's not overpriced, depends how scruffy ?!! I've recently seen a 130k Ti on eBay up for £6000 and it's tidy ! Have a look and compare its still up for sale.

Just had a look, yes interior is rough :(( mines on 117k and is almost spotless still, rear badge and front is faded and worn ... 'Full service history' ... Doesn't say 'full alfa service history' not that this is a big deal ... Also you can't tell what the paint is like from the distance in photos, which would be a key factor for me as its a known big problem, also the alloys.... I'd definately test drive a car of this mileage for clutch feel, steering noise, turbo noise, all of which are a massive bill if they fail just after your warranty (if your warranty covers them) turbos normally arent. Ask for a list of what's been replaced ? I doubt it's done 117k without anything being done.

I am expecting to take my own Alfa 159 Ti (mine's a SW) into SDR in the next couple of weeks. I don't mind taking a look at the one they have for sale (presume it's the metallic black one) if you like provided the vague timing of my visit is not too vague for your purposes. Let me know.
