Re: 05 FL 3.0 13k miles - £8800
Dougie,just had a detailed look at the interior of the 3.0 F/L,
unfortunately it has got that hideous custard coloured interior,
I saw one at national alfa day last summer,even the ics surround
is that colour,it looks strange and I personally couldn't live with it,
but of course that is my own opinion,I know there are F/L owners
on here that have the light coloured interiors and like them ,but I had
a t/s with a cream cloth interior,never liked it and murder to keep clean!
Anyway you won't have that problem with your TI,as they are
black,instruments are black faces with nice italian script,plenty
of nice little touches.
By the way are you picking it up tomorrow?Where abouts is it?
You will find the firm,well damped ride and lack of dive under braking
is a revelation compared to the earlier cars.
Enjoy the drive back,plenty of poke from that 3.2!
Would have had one myself,but the narrow country lanes around
here are better suited to the T/S.
I have had the TI,for 3mths. now and done about 3k. miles in
her,I have to say up to now its' the best car I have ever owned
and a joy to live with.
I was out in a Jag. xj,the one with the aluminium body today 03
plate for sale at a dealer friend of mine £13k. for nothing!nice car
but you know, to say that its' the current model,incredibally
boring with an old fashioned wood and leather interior,and they say
166s' depreciate this was £50k.ish and no sat nav.
Nice drive but same old jag.The only radical design is the new XF,
looks a bit like a Lexus ,but the interior is superb.
Getting back to the 166 ,it still looks so fresh and modern,no wonder
we love them ,there is really nothing to compare with them,and
dont' believe everything that the detractors say about the F/l
and in TI guise they really look the business.
Have a good long look at the side profile of yours and you will see how
low and purposeful they look.
Enjoy the trip home!
