Back again in a 166
Used to access this forum on a regular basis afew years back.
Had my interest rekindled recently as I lost confidence in my much loved 156 2.4 JTD after 3 years and 115,000 fun miles and decided it had to go.
Determined to stick to the Alfa brand and resigned to a consistent 40,000 miles a year plus I tried to find a modern Alfa that I liked and was prepared to spend a significant amount of money on. I really tried........but failed. The Brera, GT, 159 - none of them really grabbed me and made me feel the way both my previous 156's did.
So I've settled on a 2.5V6 166. Used the car over the Christmas / New Year period and covered some miles in it with trips to Hereford and Glasgow. I was well impressed. Big luxury motor with great performance, surprisingly good fuel economy on the motorway and that certain Alfa magic.
It's good to be back.
