The Alfa Romeo 159 was launched being aimed at the compact executive car marketplace in 2004 when the Alfa Romeo 156 was retired from the market.
It had several features shared with other Alfa Romeo cars including the Brera and Spider production cars. They were all based on the same platform shared with General Motors.
Remapping The Alfa Romeo 159 ECU
The development of a shared General Motors and Alfa Romeo platform was a common practice helping to keep costs down. In the case of the Alfa Romeo 159, it included sharing the same underbody. Essentially the floor, engine compartment and frame) as well as the axle and suspensions (front and rear suspension components. This would also include the steering mechanism and any power steering as well as the fitting points for the engine and power drive parts.
As the Alfa Romeo 159 was aimed at the compact executive car market but despite coming third in the 2006 European Car of the Year award only about 240,000 cars were built.
Drawbacks to the Alfa Romeo 159 model
As an executive model car, the Alfa Romeo 159 engine was not as highly tuned as it could have been. The extra weight built into the executive “extras” leads to significantly lower performance figures. This shows up when compared more to similar models marketed by other car manufacturers.
However, with the skills built up over recent years Croft Autotech in Ellon can carry out an upgrade to the Alfa Romeo 159 ECU to recover most of that lost performance power.
