Re: Last new 166 in UK sold!
Thanks all - been out in it!
I love the alloys on it. I hadn't seen them because when I bought it the car was off site. I only saw them on Friday when I picked the car up. I was going to try and get the TI alloys instead, but the second I saw them I was so glad I didn't. I agree - they do suit the car.
Yep Dougie - been following Dave Harrison's purchase as well, including the spoked alloy sale to Pomeo. Was tempted by those. I think these alloys are classic Alfa and have to thank Paul at Veloces for convincing me to stick with them (when I hadn't seen them).
It is an 08 plate and has already caused quite a few admiring looks, including a chica in a lovely 70s Spider (who thumbed up).
Miss my 147 GTA in terms of pure poke, but used the manual sportronic mode this evening and found it a bit more feisty. Will consider some Auto Delta at some point I think.
Never owned a car with 0 on the milometer - quite a buzz.
Any ideas on how best to run her in?
