Looking for a 166

Just new & fresh to the site. I'm in the market for a 166. In the land of AUS downunder you don't see too many 166's floating about.
I don't know much about them & don't know anyone that has one.
I know that I'd like to experience one for a while.

So what should one look out for. I'm looking at the pre 2003 models with the 3.0 V6 engine. Probably settle for a 2002 model since thats more in my budget. I prefer the old front as opposed to the newer models. Are there things that are inherently fowling up?.
Any issues with transmissions engine brakes or suspension?.
I've heard that electrics can sometimes play up - but they say that
about most Alfa's.

What about performance & fuel consumption - any MUST DO's with servicing & oil. Would anyone know if that V6 was also used in other models?.

Too many questions - just some pointers would be fine.

Thanks guys.
