Re: 166 vs 159
I´ve had i quick ride in the 159 Sportwagon, equipped with JTD 1,9 engine. It felt rock solid and very comfortable, but maybe a bit dull compared to my old 156 Sportwagon. On the other hand, noise level was lower in my opinion (compared to the 156 that is) but the cabin interior didn´t feel anywhere near as nice as the 166 interior! Sure, the instruments and dials looked like they belonged in a space shuttle, but it all lacked the luxiourus (probably didn´t spell that right) feeling to it.
The biggest let down however was the size, it actually felt smaller than the 156! No way I can settle for that size now that I´ve had the 166 for some time. So, I guess I´ll have to wait for some used 169s to appear........
