166 Top Gear Appearance

I missed the first 5 minutes of Top Gear last night (16 May) and switched on to see that JC was driving around some run-down northern town in a new Alfa 166. It seemed to be more about the price of housing than about the car, but I got the impression he liked the car. Did anyone catch the whole feature? What did I miss?

They also had an Autodelta 147 GTA on the show which made it into the top 10 of fastest laps, and probably got through a set of tyres in the process.

He loved the 166 to bits, apart from the depreciation. And that 147... some machine!

Re: 166 Top Gear Appearance

He also reviewed the 166 recently in his newspaper column. Mentioned the heavy depreciation but loved the car. Said that if he was in the market for that type of car, he'd get the 166 regardless of the cost, it was such a nice drive.
Considering the competitors in that market, high praise I think.
