I have owned this car for about 6 years and it has been absolutely brilliant and never let me down. She has wanted for nothing during my ownership as you will see as you read on.
The car comes in Alfa Argento metallic (Silver) and has a current MOT valid until 10/03/2018 and FSH, some main dealer and more recently my local independent garage where Alex and Steve (an Alfa trained Tech) have cared for her. There are 11 stamps in the service book, she has had yearly oil changes regardless of mileage and the she has covered just over 113k. She comes with all the original books and 2 remote keys.
The 159 Sportwagon is officially classified as a Turismo model but please, please do not think that means cloth seats and not much else. She came with full Alfa black leather sports seats as an optional extra (I would not have bought her otherwise) and she has dual climate control, cruise control, electric windows all-round, leather steering wheel with audio controls, start up ignition button and heated, electrically folding door mirrors. There is also an original set of black 159 cloth mats which are still in good condition. The car also comes with 17’’ multi spoke alloys with 225/50/17 Goodyear efficient grip tyres all round (all with good tread) and a rare full size steel spare which is pretty much unused plus the original tool kit.
The car has also had these additional items added by myself to get the car to the spec I wanted. Rear parking sensors, front LED Daylight Running lights, wind deflectors, auto dim rear view mirror, and rear boot 12v socket. Also I have in the last 2 years fitted B4 Bilstein shocks all round.
In addition to all this the car was given the full treatment by Adie at AHM Hampshire and has had the full EGR delete, DPF removal and remap. No more EGR issues and the moderate remap now produces around 185 bhp instead of the standard 150 and it has also ironed out a lot of the flat spots during acceleration. It really is a great car to drive, almost as quick as a 2.4 but I still get around 40 mpg even with spirited driving (God I will miss her)
In addition to her comprehensive service record she has had a recent brand new turbo and a new clutch. Also the cam belt and water pump was done less than 24k ago. I have many old invoices and most old MOTS.
The overall condition of the body work is very good indeed with the only real blemish being two recent medium stone chips on the bonnet which have been touched in. There are one or two other minor stone chip type marks on the front and a few other very minor marks commensurate with age but nothing dreadful.
I am only selling due to a slight downsizing in vehicles as my new Giulietta is arriving soon. I am sure the first person who see’s my lovely 159 SW will buy her. I am based in South London. All serious offers considered. No canvassers or car buying companies please. Many thanks.
