Alfa 166

Hello from a new 166 owner!

Just been entertaining myself with the 'subtle details' thread; looks like I've got some catching up to do! Having picked up my 166 Lusso on Wednesday I'm still at the 'phwoar!!' stage! Great car, my first Alfa since way back in the day (a glorious Sud and a ropey Sprint). Home at last...

Congratulations on the 166, sumiko.

Once you've worked out what's wrong with the old girl (and there will be something, unless God was the last owner), have a look for some answers here:

For fun and frolics, go here:

And to get something off your chest, walk this way:

That should keep you going for a while!

And, as Pomeo says, the water's fine (as long as your water pump's got a metal impeller).
