Warning Alfa virgin

Evening folks,
Joe ere. I'm new to this forum stuff, and computers generally (one finger typing and all that).But I'm a big lover of all Italian cars, which brings me to my question.. I'm looking to buy a GTV
3.0 V6 very soon, preferably in grey, silver or red with aero kit and teledials, but colour's not a massive issue. And I'm wondering what the best advice anyone can give to an Alfa virgin who's about to purchase one of these beautiful monsters.
I am aware of the whole love hate relationship thing and electrics being a pain (I've had a couple of Fiats), so practicality isn't an issue
with me, I just need some careful advice....Can anyone help?

Re: Alfa virgin

welcome to AO dude....i dont own a 166 thus do not know its particuliar habits, if any !! just check for a full and thorough service history with belts and tensioners changed every 36k or 3 years, which ever is sooner...check you have all the keys, they can be expensive to get cut.....

best of luck
