Hello dark side
Hello guys and gals, ex 166 super owner has bought a tractor. Apart from when the egr valve is sticking I am impressed.
Used to feel I was a member of that "only 300 sold in the UK" club of 166 owners, and partly that was why I hankered after one and didn't want to sell it.
Agreeing smugly with Clarkson when he praised the interior, blah, blah, blah. Well, had my 156 for 4 days now and I've got to say I was believing some "propaganda". The 156 is much more liveable with, where you would have to look at the ICS on the 166 to select whatever function / change you wanted, the controls on the 156 dash just fall to hand.
Much more useable, and that applies to the chassis as well. Just a quick 1st thoughts 'cos being nagged to load the dishwasher, here's my 1st foggy pic.
Quadcamboy? Has anyone seen 3 camshafts lying around anywhere?
Evidence of my disease: '79 Alfasud 1.5ti, '80 2.0 Gulietta, '89 164 2.0ts, '90 75 2.0ts, '92 164 3.0 24v Super, '94 164 3.0 24v Super, '96 155 widebody 2.0ts Super, '97 155 widebody 2.0sp, '99 166 3.0 Super, '51 2.4 jtd 156 sp2. Looks like there aint a cure!
