I am considering selling mine, but not for 2K I am afraid.

I agree completely I'm not into mods at all, keep it original but Damien is right and it only looks like the headlights are tinted, just look at it as a project no harm going for a look, I think its in Tipp so one of the lads down that way will view it with you

166 are great car, especially the 6 cylinder version, go for it

I know it's ridiculous to get a 3l, but when I decided to go for a 166, I knew if I don't get one with the best engine, there will be a part of me regretting it every time I drive it, see it or think of it. I can help you with lots of advice, but all of these will come from the heart, not from the brain ("proof" of my sanity is the road tax I pay every year)

Probably the fact that there is a pic of a receipt from Advance Pitstop, hopefully it is just for tyres though.

my colleague "serviced" his car in a similar "outlet", since then he has the oil warning light on, and has to top it up every 100 miles....
