Re: Oh no! Heading for the dark side.
Overall Jabber I agree with you. The worst part about changing from the 166 to the 156 was the moment I first got in it! Compared to the 166 the interior feels very low rent. Thats not a shock though, the 166 was the flagship of the range and had the price tag to match. However once you drive the 156, you can forgive it that. It's such a fun car to drive, you really feel part of the car, much like my Alfas of old. I felt I had no choice but to change from a 166 as fuel costs are becoming so stupid now. I do miss the class of the 166 with out a doubt, but the 156 does otherthings so much better. Neither car is better, they are just designed to achieve different things.
