Hello everyone !
Looking forward to getting to know some, if not all, of you over time.
Just purchased an 2002 166 TS. Only have a dealer photo at the moment but will get round to putting up some better pictures in the near future.
This is my third Alfa, my first two having been a pair of 1.8 146's. During my time as custodian of both of those cars I was a member of the excellent alfa145.com forum. I really cannot praise the members of that site highly enough, through good times and ...well, the rest of the time.
My own obsession with the Alfa Romeo marque began at age 5 when my neighbor would attempt each morning to get her (pretty new) Alfasud to start and bring us all to school..
Sometimes it didn't start at all... Oh but when it did..
The sound of that glorious Alfa note has stayed with me for ever..
In between the 146's I had a Mazda Xedos 6 which was a beautiful car but was written off by a drunk driver whilst parked one night. Last car was an E class Merc.
I had been looking for a decent 166 since I had bought the Merc but there just wasn't one to be had over here.
It is by no means perfect, usual ICS code, intermittent clutch/pedal grief and other little niggles but I look forward to getting round to getting them sorted and sharing the knowledge and info both ways with fellow members.
P.S. If anyone in Munster knows of a donor 166 for parts, or would just like to meet up drop me a pm.
