Alfa 166 2.0TS

First Post

Been driving Alfas for 25 years. Presently running a 2 year old 166 2.0 TS 6 speed manual with a new style front. Came to the forum looking for information about retro-fitting a Factory Sat Nav System in terms of cost, availability, where the unit normally sits in the car, technical installation data, etc, etc.

So far I have gleaned - go for a G3, check for pre-installed loom and plug(s) near battery area and fit an aerial on the rear parcel shelf.

Is that it, or is there any more specific data anywhere? A pointer to any further information would be appreciated....

Welcome on board. Never realized the 166 2.0TS had six gears

Any pics of your lovely 166 to share with us?

Re: First Post

Hi folks

Thanks for all your friendly welcome replies. No actual photos yet but I've put a representative one on (model and colour). Probably the picture that inspired me to get the 166 ...
