In short, I love to drive - especially in my Alfa Romeo.
I have just bought 166 2.4 jtd from 2004 as a replacement of a 156 2.0 TS 2000. Before the 156 I had a 146 1.6 L (Boxer). which I bougt from my father. I like the algorithm 146 1.6 + 10.4 = 156 2.0 + 10.4 = 166 2.4
I really enjoyed the 156, the design is brilliant, the feeling of driving a gocart on small roads is wonderfull, makes you smile of the time.
However my kids are getting older, and the room for 3 boys on the backseat is quite limited.
I have always been very facinated of the design of the 166, It has great style. The driving is also great, but very different from the 156, since it is a much more heavy car. Further it takes a while to accept the sound from the engine, it is not the same with a diesel engine. But the power is unbelievable, from 60 km/t to 160 km/t it takes no time
I'm living in Denmark outside Copenhagen, and are driving 100 km a day, mostly of high ways. Thats very the diesel gets into the pitchure.
I look forward to read and learn from your stories at this forum.
