Re: Is the 166 ugly?

My brother has just sold his 155 - :: View topic - Alfa 155 1.8 TS 8v widey pics

Surely not considered ugly?

I always get admiring glances to my "old" 166 -

The point is...I recall the owner of a house in Mount Ellen near Gartcosh Glasgow painted the outside of his house bright canary yellow How garish BUT the point I am making when he was inside his house he couldn't see the outside Poor neighbours

The inside of the 166 is IMHO one of the best I have ever been in.Everthing is so conveniently located and perfect.except for niggle... Well its an Alfie

Dougie re the paint I am afraid you are in No2 slot Agm' is car NO1...Unless someone else knows better

I'll really need to get into mine when the weather improves.

P memas

Lets all vote ugly and keep the beasts for ourselves.

Re: Is the 166 ugly?

155 = aggressive, sporty, but not 'pretty'.

166 = stunning rear, awkward front (for some), unless viewed from low down
