166 2.5 manual

a 500 gamble

hi from Dublin

This 1999 2.5 v6 was about to be parted before I saved it... the man said it was a crime as it drove perfectly, it just needed the code entering every time it to start it. I thought "I can fix that" so fingers crossed! I've only spent an hour with it so far - can't wait to get stuck in! 69k, black leather, belts just done, great condition! Cheque book ready and waiting....

166 2.5 manual

thx - yeah I drove an auto 2.5 a few weeks ago, loved the engine but found the box sluggish and unresponsive, plus it didn't have electric seats so I left it. when I saw this was manual, with better spec I had to have it.

Now if I could just get the pesky thing started! Off to the tech formus

I'd love a 3.2 with lpg, chances are slim to none.
