I saw a Rubino red metallic Ti today. It looked great - nearly as :cool: as Carbonio! ;)

If you fancy a Ti I say get one, they are great. I love mine to bits. :thumbs:

I feel guilty when she's dirty.

I love the looks ad build.

I love the handling.

I don't care that the oddments storage is a bit poor.

I adore the bum-warming seats - I only remembered it had them this week one cold evening. Not unique I know but I've never had them and it is lovely.

If I won the lottery tomorrow I'd still keep it as my daily and buy other stuff to go with it. Get one.:thumbs:

Question ..

The red alfa 159 shown at Alfa Romeo 159 is this a new metallic colour and why you all seem to love the new ti ?

(After once having taken delivery of a gold citroen xsara which when it arrived came in a shade described by my friends as 'metalic urine' colour is important to me !)

I have a horribly slow internet connection and I haven't the pateience to get into that 159 site again! However I think that is the special edition 8C red at about £15k surcharge.:wow:

Rubino is a bit of a darker red shade.

I can't speak for everyone but I thought long and hard about what I wanted to buy and coming out of a Mazda (worthy but dull) I find the Ti beautiful. I really do love it. It looks fantastic, it drives great, it just is a lovely thing.

That is tempered by the frisson of danger that goes with buying any new Alfa but so far so good and I have examples of our company fleet Accords being off the road for two weeks with turbo and wiper motor failure and an X-type failing it first MOT at less than 70k.

I can't decide whether the car on that website is wearing Alfa Red, or the 8C red. It looks a little too 'orange' for Alfa Red, but the colours on swatches/brochures/websites are never that close a match are they? After much see-sawing between Carbonio and Red, I went for Alfa Red when I ordered my Ti a couple of weeks ago. Went for it on the basis of rarity. Can't wait!

That's interesting - my 159 SW ti is Alfa Red, and I don't think it's the best colour for it at all.

I've never thought flat red suited the bigger cars - fine for the 33, 147, and even 155, and the 156 can just about get away with it, plain wrong for the 164/166. I also think it can make the GT look a bit slabby (and I think in general the GT is a great looking car), and in red the GTV somehow looked a bit cheap. I've not seen a red Brera in the flesh, as far as I can remember, but I think that for the 159 there's an awful lot of red, even moreso with the SW.

I got mine because it was in stock and I got a reasonable deal, but out of free choice I'd have ordered Carbonio Black or even flat Black in preference to the red.

Even in red it's still a good looking car, though, no doubt about that. :)

I agree - the 159 SW Ti is the best looking estate car on the planet............. after a 156 SW GTA that is ..... the original and still best looking estate car on the planet :lol:

Surly thats a good enough to buy one! Why have doom and gloom when you can have stylish and gleam! If you down, buy something to cheer you up, and i dont even own a Ti but i know everytime you sit in those amazing seats your gonna feel like a million dollers!
