I'm very happy with....

my 166 which I bought last Friday. It's a 2.0 TS with 84000 miles on the clock. I'm sure I will be bombarded with requests for a photo or two but as yet I haven't got one so you'll just have to imagine a silver 166 for now. I want to get a photo of it alongside my Montreal and will as soon as I have sorted out the logistics of doing so.

Re: I'm very happy with....

Welcome to the club.
We are all very happy with our 166s, but as you will see quite a few of us are unhappy with Alfa as a company.
Love the car, love the looks, the engines, love the sound, love the handling and ride.
Loathe the durabilty and lousy "customer service" from Alfa....

Hope you had all your cambelt stuff changed at 72K, if not, DO IT NOW!!!

Re: I'm very happy with....

Welcome to our little (fairly rare) corner of Alfa Romeo ownership! I too have a 2.0TS.

Have you been surprised at how well it handles / goes for a big car with only the 2.0 in it?

Do get some pics of it on here and also add it to the members garage.

Ecco CrispDust's comment about cambelt. In fact, even if it was changed at 36,000 or 48,000 then its due to be changed again. If you take it to a good Alfa independent then it should cost about 250 to 300 quid. But I'm guessing you are already aware of this.

And we are very happy for you, Gibbo

If you can't manage a photo yet, how about a crayon drawing?
