Alfa 159 Sportwagon TI jtdm

So picked this up this morning, quite happy today

Just before i drove it off the forecourt.


Next to my dads car (one of my old cars lol) who kindly took me to get it







I have decided to call it Urchin in memory of Richard Brown, not sure it suits the car but it feels right.

Very, very nice! Although for some crazy reason I randomly saw picture #2 on my Facebook feed... shady!

Always had a soft spot for this generation of Alfa's. Wouldn't mind an '04 model Alfa GT one day.

Re: Alfa 159 Sportwagon jtdm TI

Really like the Ti spec since I sat in one at Mitcar many years ago. Not so much a fan on the tan leather - but wouldn't the world be a boring place if we all liked the same things?

Providing our replacement for the Croma doesn't try to bankrupt us, perhaps a Ti or Q4 might be coming my way this year.

Re: Alfa 159 Sportwagon jtdm TI

i really wanted red leather, but i'm happy with just red stitching lol.. Its the only thing the car didn't have on my want list though. It had to have them wheels and the TI styling, and it had to have 1.9 jtdm engine and the roof rails, as i think they just look so much better with them on and not easy to retro-fit so i've heard..

I am properly surprised by the poke of the jtdm 150 engine - its in a totally different league to my old stilo jtd in terms of grunt. Although i admit i have been looking at remaps etc. Cloverleaf spec is just software upgrade, uses same turbo etc etc.

Re: Alfa 159 Sportwagon jtdm TI

I don't really need an estate, I just like them - think they look better than saloons, perhaps I'm just wrong in the head..? I got the Stilo MW just cause I prefer look of it to 3 or 5 door as well. Having a massive boot is handy at times though - now I don't have a van any more.

not sure i would say the best, its the fanciest, plushest, most grown up car I've owned for sure.

I thought you needed something reliable to use instead of the turbo Sei...
