Well Happy New Owner - usual issues!!

Hello everyone - just taken the plunge and bought my first 166 ,a T plate 3.0 Sportronic in Aurora with cream leather .
It's a lovely car ,had loads of 164 's ,mainly Cloverleafs ,in the past and thought I would make the jump up!Build quality is obviously vastly better as a first impression ,but the car is also nowhere near as quick as a 24v Leaf ,obviously due to the probable extra weight and the autobox .

Just got a couple of things to sort out ,namely it needs a new backbox and has the dreaded non working aircon fan motor! I dont mind wielding a spanner (probably just as well!) so shall be getting stuck in soon!

Just wanted to know if people have good reports of the backboxes from Catman seen mentioned on the forums (believe "only" about 130 ish) and also is the heater fan motor from Alfa Romeo for 140 or a aftermarket replacement?

Thanks everyone
