Re: Ebay Facelift 166
[QUOTE=vivian 166;1257705]This is exactly the right price for a facelift,this is what I have been
saying on the many posts lately ,discussing the inflated prices
dealers are asking for these cars,this one is high on miles for an
04 plate,and of course has the cambelt etc. been changed in line
with the latest 36k. sevice interval?
I actually bought a 04 facelift (3.0 V6) with 56K on the clock, and a new cambelt/tensioners etc) for around 7K a few months ago. My previous 166 (T-reg) had done 110K effortlessly when I sold it, so high miles are not an issue for me. The week before I had driven a black 51 plate model at Mangoletsi and they were quoting around 8K. There seems to be a massive differential between what you can get privately and through a garage wrt facelift 166s. I think if you really want one, you need to have a three month window, and hang on until one becomes available in the 7-10K price range. I have seen a number in the 7-10K range this year with mileage varying between 25-50ish K, but all sold within a day or two of going on sale.
