Re: So what car would persaude you out of the 166? (Warming contains Non Alfas!)
I would like something RWD/4WD next, however, all prospective purchases have to get clearance from her-nibs, who has a keen eye for the aesthetic aspects of cars, regardless of whether they are any good to drive or not!
Eg. I have considered, at various stages;
Jaguar XJ/Mercedes S320CDi -"Old man's car"
Saab 9-5 Estate-"Hideous"
Any BMW- "I don't like BMWs"
Subarus-"Hideous vent" (in the bonnet she means)
And so it goes on......
Therefore, my next car would probably be something like an Audi S4 Avant (S5 2.7 TT), not the last word in an involving drive, but has a brilliant engine, 4wd traction, Recaro interior.
The Phaeton has also caught my attention, basically a Bentley underneath, air suspension, 4wd and built in the same factory, IIRC.
Or, if I'm staying Italian, 159 Ti 2.4 Sportwagen, which she does like, thank the Lord!
