I don't much care for the pre-facelift 166. The later models, however, are just immense

Dougie got my vote, facelift 166's seem really rare, and those wheels are

Re: AO Car of the Year 2008: 164 & 166 (5)

Thanks everyone for your support so far. Here are some more photos which I took today.

I seriously love this car. When I broke up with my girlfriend I asked my mum for advice and she told me "at least you've still got the car". Wasn't quite the support I was looking for but she made a fair point

A lone 164 in a sea of 166s! It's not fair as trying to compare a 166 with a 164 is like chalk and cheese.

I would no more try and compare a 155 with a 156 than I would these two!

Maybe I'll have to try and whip up some support in the 155 Forum !

Re: AO Car of the Year 2008: 164 & 166 (5)

i luv AGM's 166. it stands out for all the right reasons: these are very uncommon around town in australia, but this is more special with the bright red paintwork, Zender bodykit, lowered stance, and optional wheels.

i too luv AntMat's Q4. that model was never sold here in australia, and it looks schmick.

but my vote goes to AGM.

My vote went to AGM's 166 for the very same reason. A great looking car. What a pity it's not a LHD as otherwise I'd pay for an option to be the first in the queue to buy it one day!

i voted for unkle munkle on the basis that his car looks like mine same colour and same wheels and its the original 166 without the eurobox front end.

Wow thanks AntMat, I'm really flattered. If you ever move to Aus and I move to France, we can do a direct car swap

Your 166 looking great AGM - Have you had it raised since the poll pic?, looks that low that it would give trouble! but looks a tad higher in later photos. Or did you just weight it down for poll pic
