Thumbs Up Let's think positive..

Not sure if this has been covered before, but maybe time do again anyway...

We know the 166 comes to us with a few gremlins aboard. But also with some fantastic "extra bits". What are you favourites? Please try and ignore the superb handling, engine noise, Italian style etc - we know about that and expect it. I'm talking cabin and extras detail here. Only had my 166 for a bit, but my top three are:

1. Rear-view mirror automatic dimming - this is so cool and works brilliantly (not that most other cars will keep up behind on a dark twisty A road at night).

2. Electronic retractable mirrors. Better if automatic though?

3. Xenon headlights. Are standard - shows class.

So what else?

Re: Let's think positive..

Don't have me 166 anymore but I liked the auto dimming rear view mirror too. Mine did not have xenon lights and the standard ones were, in fact, the worst lights I have ever experienced. Any car could have kept up with me on a dark twisty A-road

Still loved the car tho'. The best 'thing' that came with it was the sense of being in a proper car that made all the right noises, handled really well with no compromise on ride quality, and just made you feel good.
