Looked at a 166 today.
Looked at and drove a silver 2002 166 today - like all Oz 166s it's 3.0 Sportronic. Silver with black leather and 89,000kms, plus full service history (all done at Alfa dealer except one done last week by this dealer - a reputable prestige car dealer, belts done at 76,000kms last year).
Looked at the quirks thread and didn't notice any of the ones listed - all windows worked, indicator canceled, etc (although box on dash did have a sticky lid...)...so it looks good.
The car hadn't been detailed but looked in good condition inside and out.
Drive was very good - a lot more power than the Golf I'm currently borrowing from my parents, lots of feedback through the steering, although the suspension felt stiffer than a '99 car I've been in (maybe down to 17' as opposed to 16' wheels).
Love the sportronic gearbox - normal mode it's nothing special, but sport mode and its whooosh...plus the engine sounds great
What I need to know is is there anything else I need to know about the car?
