166 3.2 :)

Hi all,

After three years driving less than desirable cars I've purchased a lovely 166 3.2. My last was a V6 GTV and while looking for one of those - which are very rare these days in the south of Ireland - I came across the 166. Millage is up in the 90's but the car was maintained well with one previous owner. I've never really considered - why I don't know - a 166 before, until I stood beside it, and then sat in it, and then drove it. It drives fantastic, lovely power and when STR is engaged it's a beast of a thing. Must do the timing belt and I think I'll have a Quaife dif installed and maybe upgrade the suspension, can't wait. One thing that is confusing me a bit is exactly what the car is. I bought what I thought was a 166 3.2 v6 lusso and reading around people claim the 3.2 is the ti version. It's fully loaded with sat nav the lot so if anyone can set me straight on that I would be greatful. Can't stop driving the thing, and she is thirsty and the tax is just shocking. In saying that when I did go to pick it up it was planted right beside an 8 series bmw v12 for around the same money - selling price not purchasing price - but the alfa just looked better and I thought I would never say that but side by side, it just was.
