Collected my '166' today, not new it has 11000 miles on the the clock. Very pleased with the appearance - black paint, dark grey leather all very swish.
Electric seats with memory are a big hit with my wife, she drove it tonight and said it was the most comfortable driving position she had ever used.
I found that the ICS was less daunting than imagined, fairly intuitive really.
Big disappointment was that I expected to have Sat Nav (it has the aerial for sat on the roof) but the ICS reports no navigation (issue with the supplier now) I did realise that there was no CD fitted, however, I did not appreciate that the Sat Nav worked via this.
Everything else, so far, is up to expectation and in some cases even beyond. I was intrigued by the speed limit facility that goes 'beep,beep,beep' when you reach the speed level that has been set. I think that this is a super feature. Other little surprise touches like the motorised folding inwards of the wing mirrors, the de-misting arrangements via the Climate Control - super. I wonder what other little gems are lurking around and waiting to be 'found out'.
All in all it is a very nice car, drives well, suspension nice, brakes ok (so far) and the Xenon lights are brilliant (not a pun). Not sure about the gear ratio's though, six speed box and the ratio's seem very close together - probably change my opinion as I get more miles under the belt.
I can see why people become 'enthusiasts' and now I have actually got it I feel part of the clan.
