Looking for a 166...

Hello to all,
I came to this forum looking for info on my next acquisition: I am looking for a good 166 V6 Turbo. I have long admired Alfa Romeo, but never had one. Now, it is time to erase that flaw from my motoring resume. As Jeremy Clarkson said, you can't be a true motorhead until you have had an Alfa! Well, I'm a motorhead, so I need to have an Alfa...

One of my two cars, a Volvo S40 T4, is great in many ways, but comfort isn't one of it's prime qualities. I have been spoiled by the comfort of the other one, a Jaguar S-Type. Since I do about 70 highway miles every day, I want to trade the Volvo for something more confortable. I once had a Lancia Kappa, 20V, and it was heavy, and a bit slow (it was not the Turbo, regrettably...), but its confort, and the noise, still haunts me. So, what better way to bliss than a 166 with a Busso V6? And I can have, at last, an Alfa, and a beautiful one at that. At 54, speed isn't everything, but I believe a 166 V6 Turbo can give me both comfort AND speed.

I do all the maintenance in my cars (was a car mechanic when I was young), so I believe I am qualified to have an Alfa, and to treat it well. Time will tell. Meanwhile, wish me luck in my search. If all goes well, I should be an Alfa owner in the not too distant future.

And, thanks to all the posters on this forum for all the info that exists here. I have learned much, and hope to continue to do so in the future.
