Yet another newbie, Tyne and Wear UK. 166 Super Lusso, 3.0 V6 manual

Hello,

Thank you for the 'add'.

Just a brief introduction for now.

After many, many years, I am a returning Afa owner after having previously owned a Sud in the 80's and a 70's Veloce Spider in the 90's. Now that I am relatively 'old', I have opted for a bit of cheap but sedate fun in a 2001 166 Super Lusso 3.0 V6 manual gearbox car. It has a multipoint LPG kit fitted that runs well and doesn't appear to affect performance at all but is great for economy.

It's a lovely old thing but as you would expect it has a few little niggles that need sorting, more later. I look forward to receiving a little support and advice from time to time so thank you all in anticipation.

Cheers,


Kevin
ps - I am located in the North East of Engand, UK.

Hmmm...pre-facelift 3.0 manual - a rare and desirable beast indeed. You are a very lucky boy. Please post some pictures.

Welcome, BTW

I don't have any decent pics but will take some soon.

This is the car, it looks good in the photo but has laquer peel and a mismatch of panit in localised repairs (drives nice though!): http://i203.photobucket.com/albums/a...psi60uuu63.jpg

Cheers,
