Re: Ebay 166
Yes no point in spending money on a dog,but if you could get the price down on the 32k mls 51 plate could make a really good buy.
I bought a 02 v6 with 92k. on at xmas for £3100,but spent £1700 ish.
getting it right,eventually found another 166 with 32k. on and traded it in,
You do feel a lot more confident with a nice low mileage car,
Anyway this is how I found the 2.5 v the T/s,25.9 mpg overall T/spark, ins.group15,24.7 mpg overall 2.5 6spd.manual,ins.group16,on a long run the v6 actually averaged a very creditable 34 mpg on my
way home from wales.
The 6 spd manual is a must,I wouldn't entertain the 2.5 sportronic,this
was actually discontinued for the 2002 model year.One of the best
features is STR which gives A VERY sharp throttle response!!
2002 m/year 2.5 is a great car,loads more equipment than t/s and
a quieter ,more flexible engine with bags more torque.Compared
to the 3.0,2.5s' can be had for bargain basement prices,try and
find a lusso,as there are a lot of 2.5s' without leather and in my
opinion it is very hard to live with the cloth,not to mention cd,auto
wipers,rear blind etc.etc,by the way these later cars are fitted with
VDC,so all in all a very nice spec
