    Vehicle : SIGNUM 1.9 CDTI 16v (Z19DTH) 2005

    Trim : SIGNUM

    Engine : Z19DTH

    Year : 2005

    Mileage : 160000

    Default Switching from Signum Z19DTH to ALFA ROMEO 159

    What do you think?

    Alfa is so much better looking, feels miles a way better to drive, it is all red and in very good condition.
    Cons are lack of space, and m32 gearbox, and Z19DT engine (great engine but underpowerd for this car)

    Signum has much more space, Z19DTH engine, but it does not give me a smile when I am driving it.Attachment 117884ddd785u-960.jpg

    the only alfa that is worth my time is a quadrofoglio with their famous 6 cylinder petrol engine.... other than that it is a really nice looking car.

    Front suspension fails regulary on these...
    159 design is far superior to Signum's, it can't be compared.

    It would be signum+800euros for alfa 159 exchange. I really dont know... If only steering on sig is more precise, dashboard more modern, gears shorter it would be great car.
