Am looking at moving upwards from my 166TS and was hoping to get the FL model. Only one in Ireland is private sale and has been up for ages, I'd like to buy from a dealer, i.e. trade in the current car (my experiences of private sales have left me disillusioned and exhausted and I'm not in the form to start trying to sell a 166 privately considering how most seem to hang around for mnths on carzone.).
I have had very little dealings with dealers and not 100% of mode of work, but is it possible to approach a garage with a trade in and specify what you'd like and see if they can source it?
By the way I checked VRT on 10k FL 166 TS for sale in UK and they're giving OMSP as 21k euro, quoting 6K for VRt, nasty.
