Alfa Romeo 166

Australian Alfa 166 Owner

Hi Gents,

I'm 29, I've had many many cars, mostly cheap stuff varying from Japanese 4x4's to European Hot Hatches, stuff up to about 25 years old and everything in between. Luxury cars, budget cars etc... Not yet had an out-and-outs sports car, that's still to come.

Just got a 2001 Alfa 166. Was looking at V6 156's but the 166's seemed to be better condition for the age, and I've always had a soft spot for the Big Alfa because of the delicate styling especially the droppy eyes. I like it when a designer forces what they think is beautiful on the customer rather then trying to tame it down to please the masses. This is something I admire about the styling in all alfa's TBH.

This is my first one, and enjoying the experience so far. I've been into Italian motorcycles recently, buying a brand new MV Agusta 4 years ago and a Brand new Ducati a year ago, so getting a bit of a penchant for all things Italian automotive.

Got a few issues with electrics I'll need to sort out, and looking forward to getting your help!
