Totally with you Aisha on this.To me the 166 gets more desirable as time passes by. Theres still something 'old school' Alfa about it that appeals to me. I like a car to be challenging in its design, to split opinions, and the 166 does that. Okay, so the front end isn't quite right but its grown on me. This is why I love the 145, opinions are divided, you either get it or you don't.
There was a black 3.0 V6 in the supermarket carpark over the weekend with those 17" Alfa alloys. I couldn't stop staring, it looked fabulous! The rear three quarter angle is the best, beautiful. I think black or silver for the 166, Alfa Red doesn't do anything for it.
Its a shame the 156 stole the limelight because as lovely as the 156 is, the 166 wears a sharper suit IMO. The interior is luxurious, even the V6s are relatively cheap secondhand, its got road presence and is an individual car that has sold in small numbers. Its not an obvious choice. All these factors appeal to me.
2.5V6 in black, 17" alloys and natural leather. Yes please!!
Are there any 166 owners on here willing to share their experiences?
God, I'm going to have difficulty choosing my next car! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]
