Fair enough, Dougie, if you've already got the money down! I wanted to have a look at it before making a decision, anyway. Although it's the only trade-up worth doing from a Super, I have some reservations.
On the plus side:
FL handling upgrades
Missing specification that I would want on a late 166
82K is close to double average and therefore...
...much of what we've already done to our existing cars would likely need doing again (Exhaust, Suspension, Clutch, Air Con, Radiator, MAF, Driver's Seat, Aesthetics etc.)
Trouble is, although they're very rare and finding one at the right price is difficult, if I was getting the 'ultimate' 166, I'd want it immaculate, including full spec., and solving all those issues could easily add several thousand pounds onto the end price, which takes it up to the price of one with lower mileage...and lower mileage is the one thing you can't 'solve' (legally!).
That's why I wanted to see it before parting with cash
. Not likely to have another chance to trade-up to a FL 3.2 for just over £5K, though...
