Alfa 166

New Boy

I am on my third Alfa in succession....GTV, 147, and now 166 2.0l twinspark 55 reg bought two years ago with 60 miloes on the clock from Mangoletsi.
Used to have a Ferrari, but was richer then, but fell in love with Italian engineering/style, although have had many irritating moments. I guess that goes with the territory.
I had a desperate rain leak problem on the 166. After 4 long visits to Vogue in Northampton, they finally said it was coming in by the heater....and they were right!
My first big question is why has it progressively become a pig to engage reverse?
My second is about tyres.....I need a new pair, and I a told I can safely switch to W or Y to replace ZR tyres....anyone have any ideas?
