Welcome to the forum, try not to go into deep panic when you read through the threads LOL.
There was a very nice TI on the ramps at Autolusso on Saturday, it was the saloon version though in white, looked great in that colour.

Good choice. I have the 1750 TB ti sw and love everything except the MPG :depressed:

I must disagree with SpiderSaint, any car in white just reminds me of an ambulance :biglaugh:

alfa red .. there can be only one.

White and ambulances eh?
It's strange the connotations some of us have.
Mine's estate cars and hearses.
Now a black sportwagon would be a very sombre proposition...

Yes it's normal for the 2.0....the 1.9s and 2.4s run lower boost standard AFAIK

had to check on boost ,as it sounds high to me also ?
you don't mention power level but indeed a boost map off a guiletta 2.0 jtdm 170hp does indeed top out around 2700mbar at 3500revs full load.
seems a lot of boost to make 170hp to me but I don't know this engine or ecu.

Lovely car James. When we were looking for my wife's 159 ti SW we didn't have a particular requirement for the roof bars until we went to see the car we ended up buying in Stromboli Grey with the bars. As for the boost, as I understand it 1.6 bar is spot on for the 170jtdm as my wifes has always run at this. We had the EGR turned off at Autolusso who before installing the map ran a diagnostic to makesure all was ok with the car. The results came back all clear with the car running at 1.6 bar

Used to have a 156 and always thought the 159 didn't look as good, but when I see one in ti spec it makes me want one!

Yours is looking particularly gorgeous, have you really gone from a cinquecento to a 159!?
