Hi from a new 166 owner
Hi all, just wanted to introduce myself as I've had my Alfa 166 2.5 24v (Manual gearbox) for just over a week now and have had lots of great information from this site already.
I've come across some of the quirks of 166 ownership already, namely the sticking dash cubby, the non-returning left inidicator and the occasional "Air con faulty" error but it's still worth it for such a fantastic car.
Have had to sort out a few problems since buying it - the tracking was way off and so needed to change some feathered tyres and noticed that the left CV joint is leaking slightly. Also the battery died on me and had to replace that - looked like it was the original Alfa one from around 7 years ago. Since putting the new battery in I can't get the SatNav to pick up any satellites. The CD changer wasn't working when I got it so I guess I need to keep an eye out on Ebay for another unit. Might just try opening it up myself as I don't think I could make it any worse !
The mileage is currently 106k and the cambelt was changed at 86k - should be ok for at least another 30k ?
Looking forward to being a more active forum member.
