    My car

    i love this car... i have now done over 20000 miles and the 2.2 really is an absolute a pleasure to drive. what i don't understand is that reviewers state the bmw 3 series and the audi a4 are of better build quality than the 159. are you serious? i had a 2006 bmw 3 series before trading for an alfa... the 159 is much better car especially when it comes to price . the 159 feels better, drives better, looks better. what more could i ask for. test drive this car it won't disappoint. my dealer has been an absolute gem to deal with. no problems whatsoever. and for that its a five star all the way... p.s my dads now trading the landrover for a 2.4 diesel brera.

    My car

    On a very simple level the fact that just thinking about the fact I now own the 159 brings a smile to my face. I can't see it wearing off. Having just spent 3 years with a brilliant but ultimately soulless Golf GTI DSG it reminds that owning a car isn't just about a great engine. The Alfa is style plus performance and quality.

    Back to reality and the 3.2 feels quick but not electric, it's a sharp drive for a big car and it seems pretty well screwed together. I'm trying not to think about fuel consumption and preferring to wind down the window and listen to the V6 :-)

    I can't remember doing that too often in the 328 I owned a few years back. Try one - you won't be disapointed.

    My car

    After 3 months the novelty has not worn off. Great car to drive and to look at. I drive cars for a living (mainly Vauhall, Ford and Peugeot with the odd BMW and Audi thrown in) and this feels so much better than any of them. Its looks go without saying! I recently had a trip to Toulouse and the entire journey was a complete pleasure. The German alternatives may have plus points but they are so boring!

    My car

    I LOVE THIS CAR!!!!! no matter how long a day I have had and how far I have to drive....it doesn't matter...in fact the further the better!!!! It's great on the motorway and hugs the corners on country roads. Honestly if you are in any doubt GET IT...you will not regret it.
