Hi, my name is Mark from Auckland NZ
I have a 2001 Alfa 166 sport with 115,000 km and a full service history up to 90,000 . It was owned by coca cola NZ until then. Have had loads of fun driving, with no issues, apart from a broken wheel and ABS sensor, prob related (don,t believe anyone who says kiwi roads are smooth).
I have just obtained another 166 (a lusso) for spares, but thanks to posts on this forum, I am now going to save it. Previous owner said it had a major water leak and electrical problems, sound familiar.
So I wil have a silver sport with blue leather interior and a dark blue lusso with grey leather and wood trim, cool huh. Sport tronic is fun, but I wish one was manual. Not seen one in NZ. How difficult would it be to change one, there are loads of baby V6 156 models here with manuals.
I look forward to joining in the forums.
