Well the Suk has served me well and still under 60K on the clock from new AUG 08.

Now fully serviced with a full MOT and I'm feeling that itch that needs to be scratched.

Nothing else out there floats my boat but when I see a 159 Ti it ticks all my boxes.

So obviously looking for the newest I can get (not on HPI etc - cash as I'm self employed) what are the things to look out for?

1. It needs to be full leather.
2. Best Engine?
3. Anything else?

Any advice greatfully received.

Best engine?

1750 TBi, but its rare.

Second, probably the 2.0 JTDm

Then the 3.2 V6 and then the 2.2, or the other way around, they're ok, but who cares, because the 159 Ti still looks awesome

How many miles do you do? If its enough to get a diesel warm, get a 2.4.

2.2 is gutless, 3.2's lots of issues, 4 pot Jtd a bit rattly.

They all break rear springs.

Sat Nav is sh%te, waste of money.

The limited edition Ti with full leather like I had is still a looker, later Ti was more cheaply trimmed
