Re: the Alfa 159 - To be named

The 159 is criminally underrated: I really don't get why anybody chose a dull, bland "prestige" german car over 1 of those!

Re: the Alfa 159 - To be named

One sexy ass car. I nearly bought one of these instead of my E90 3 Series but it was f***ed. Looked like it had been lived in by a family of gyppo's.

chris i can honestly say it is a car that is worth a look in , my brother has a e46 320d , and the alfa looks 100x better and drives alot better , but the Bm has a better boot space , i got mine for a steal of a price , and never looked back at the next show were both at mate you can happly go for a drive in it and see what you think of them


Also just had the Grill wrapped today

Re: the Alfa 159 - To be named

Very tasteful. When we were looking for a replacement for the 156 we thought about one of those but there weren't many around in the Alfa dealer system and I wasn't keen on buying one without the right history so we got the Giulietta MA instead.

Still got the 156 though. Took it for a drive down to Sandbach today to have the brakes looked at by Alfie at Heath Road Garage. The rear brake line had corroded and as it's a metal pipe and a pain in the backside to replace as it goes over the petrol tank he just replaced a section. 2 hours labour for 50. Not bad I'd say.

Next job is to replace the rear pads and discs as they're getting pretty badly scored.

The 159 is a good looking car anyway, but in SW version it's a diamond, especially in black.
