Potential new 166 owner.

Hi all, this is my first post on this forum, but if things work out will not be my last. We are looking to purchase a 166 as a family car as my GTV is not great for long holidays with two children and other reasons.

We are currently in the process of purchasing one from a reputable specialist dealer; however, it does not have a CD player. The dealer has the cable required but not the six CD changer. Whilst one could be sourced from AR UK I would rather not incur that cost.

I have found the following 7860 on ebay, and know this was the replacement for the 2660.


Does any one know if this will work with the 166? The 166 is an end of life model does any one know what is being fitted in place of it for broken units?

Hello mate, welcome to AO.

I was lucky & mine had a CD fitted from new. If you do a search and type "166 cd" you will find loads of info as this is a common problem with 166 owners and no CD!!

Hope it helps.

Re: Potential new 166 owner.

nope - that won't work with the 166...only the proper Alfa badged becker units will work i'm afraid

It will plug in, power up but won't speak to the ICS system....
