166 new owner, anything to look for?

hi all.

just had a result, used the swapz site to straight swap a mint black 166 2.5 sportronic for my saab 9-5 turbo that had engine probs that i'd masked. the new alfa, my 3rd since i was a young lad with rwd alfetta's and guiletta's. it has full history,118k miles, had full top end rebuild 25k ago after the cam belt snapped, it seems everything works, the alloys are unmarked, anything i should look out for? cheers. so happy i cant sleep
