Just go and have a look at your car, sit in it, look at the soft leather..........now just rev the engine and listen to the purr........the alloys.................Its not a car its an Italian Stallion...........you own one of the best cars on the road (ask clarkson)....and the dash............just look at it, it makes you wanna drive and drive and drive some more!

Now look at how smooth the bonnet line it, and how awesome the engine is and how HUGE the back box of the exhaust is - its something special! You could die tomorrow, you could lie and be happy you own a 166.......................besides your house it worth more......sell that an but a huge van with air beds.

Shut up Esh Shut Up You are selling it better than scooby....i am beginning to feel the need...No she'd cut my hands of and I wouldn't be able to drive the ones ive got.

Seriously though. I cleaned and polished the car on Sunday and I stood back after it all and just stood in admiration, it is an awesome motor!

However I have been in a similar situation before when I had a BMW 540i and had to travel to Bathgate everyday. It absolutely skinned me!!

Please do not add comparisons about BMW to Alfa, this is a far better car.

Ultimately it is a car though, and i swore to myself then I would not get in such a situation again.

TBH not had much interest apart from the threads on the alfa forums, so it will be in the autotrader next week.

Scooby Lad get your thinking cap on there must be a better solution.

In all the cars I've ever owner I have only sold 2 on.The rest I have had to take to the scrappy with a tear in my eye.Parting is such sweet sorrow when they have been such loyal trusty servants.

When I took my old A reg Orion Ghia which I had from brand new in 1984 to the scrappy in 1999 I was almost inconsoleable.BUT Mrs P was dancing a jig of joy at the entrance.The final straw was when I said to the scrappy...Now I dont want her going back on the road again...He said Dont worry son and proceeded to jump into the forklift drive over to the orion and plunge the lift right down into her roof.Well it was too much for me I had to leave....But Mrs P she was wetting herself with laughter...Isn't life cruel.

(Dont tell anyone but I also cry at sad movies....All the other Ps laugh at me...i dont care coz when they are watching me they miss the end of the film.)
Can ye no car share .They have even removed the tolls from the bridges to help you.
