New to Alfa's

Hi All

I have just been buying myself a 2001 166, with a zender kit and 17in wheels on it, It looks the part and will get some pics up as soon as we get a nice day to clean her.

Be back soon

Make it so! Look forward to seeing the snaps.

What engine do you have in it? Do the looks match the engine?

And......Welcome!!!

It certainly does..... Mine is a dark blue version, and has spoked Alfa wheels, it may even be an inch or two lower than the one in the pick!
Unfortunatly the story turns a little sour at this point as it only has a 2.0 ts engine, and how I wish it was the 3.2 chrome bad boy.......

I think that she could maybe do with some attention to her engine also, but that can be a new thread in the relevant place.

Great to feel welcome, Cheers

A quick pick, not the best in the world, but will get some nice ones sorted soon....

Re: New to Alfa's

Looks good! Nice colour!
How low is it? Looks like the front will catch speed bumps?!

Cheers, I couldn'tresist it when I saw i parked in a line of 156's! It just looked bad!!
Its really quite low! I have pulled the side skirts off on both sides with 2 adults and 2 kids in, going over a speed ramp.... It was a very high and narrow one also!!
Was gutted, but they just pop back on, without too much trouble. haven't had any trouble with the front though...

.....Let me know if you have any comments about the wipers...hopefully better than those on the 155 and 156.
