Fantastic Alfa alloys, leather interior, electric folding mirrors(!), freezing cold A/C, uprated Xenon headlamps (standard halogen output is dreadful!), lowered & adjustable suspension, Eibach springs, uprated steering rack- timing belt, thermostat & water pump replaced at same time.
ECU upgrade to 235bhp.
Nearside front wing has some slight damage and there are the usual cosmetic marks commensurate with a 11 year old car, but she still looks great and pulls like a train which ties up with the relatively low mileage.
I'm selling the 159 for a friend who's in the forces and away on tour.
MOT'd until 2.10.2017
Price firm and takes into account condition and needs 4 new tyres for next MOT.

Nice daily for a couple of grand. It's needed a recon turbo shortly after me buying it but it's been going well since... Read the full summaryView members blog entries about this car
Loved it. Best looking car I've ever owned (Rubino red with telephone dial 18" alloys). Not as good to drive as BMW but looks stunning and makes you feel special (I bought it when they were first released). Thirsty for diesel under 2 litres.
