finally I've got time to introduce myself. I'm Tjeerd and some of you had already found my car in the Alfa Romeo 166 Showroom
that is part of the dutch Alfa Romeo Forum.
The car is a 3.0 V6 which was reasonable standard when I bought it, you can see that on some photos. Looking for Nero or Grigio Titanio, I couldn't help but fall in love with this one. There are 3 or 4 known 166's (at least, to me) in Holland in this colour, so it's pretty rare.
The LPG installation is a so-called G3, so I even get discount on ownership taxes because it is considered environment friendly
Guess the don't know the 166 goes only 7 km's on an average litre of fuel. The tank fills the spare tyre space, end the trunk floor is elevated some 7 cm's. Still space enough to transport a normal Alfa Romeo 155 driver's seat.
The spoiler set is from MS Design, and I liked it instantly because it may not be as stylish as the Novitec and Zender ones, but it gives the car just a little extra aggressiveness that suits the car beautifully.
Next thing was the exhaust, as I knew the diffusor would largely determine what sizes and exhaust tip styles were possible. The one-oval on the left and one right didn't workout in Photoshop and 2 round tips left and 2 on the right seemed too ordinary. You see them quite often in Holland. finally there were the Porsche Cayenne style tips, but at first they seemed too big. After a little customization of the rear fender mounting points they could be fitted anyway with the obvious result. The exhaust is of rvs, so it won't rust ever again, and the mid damper is replaced with a cup pipe from Novitec.
The biggest exterior mods are covered, some small things are new Alfa Romeo logos as the old ones were worn and paled. Also new license plates with fresh & black letters on it, and last weekend I replaced the rear lights with smoke-painted ones.
The audio system now contains an amplifier that drives a subwoofer and two extra speakers under the "hoedenplank", the board in front of the rear window with the sunblinds in it.
It's quite a story now, but pretty complete I think. If you've got questions, feel free to ask and I'll try and answer them.
