i've got her!!!

well guys I took the trip to Dublin yesterday, & picked up the 166!!!! Wow she's absolutley brilliant. So comfy & although she's a modest 2ltr, she can't half move!! Got home after 6pm, the complete lack of traffc heading out of Dublin astonished me!!

the fantastic heating system kept the inside of the car at a constant 23oC, even when it dropped to -5oC outside!

Once i've got Xmas day over with i'll post some pics!!!

well since it was my wife's 30th yesterday, we went to lunch on Farnham Estate in Cavan, which gave me a chance to test the 166 on some really lovely winding roads, wow she's a fantastic mover for whats still quite a large car, never once got out of shape & when i did get a straight bit of road & put my foot down, she excelled!!!

i was driving along with a huge smile on my face, guys i'm in love!!!

What a car....pics to follow today...promise!!

going to get the polish out that i used on a red alfa 164 i owned when i get a dry day (& maybe a bit of a mild day too!!)

BTW guys, in order to keep red looking good, how often should i polish the 166?

Polish it as much as you like man. I would polish and wax my car weekly to be honest never did it any harm.

I would too Damien but sure its too hard to keep cars clean in this country, my car is scruffy outside and I wont bother cleaning her until the spring I reckon. Besides the coat of dirt might protect my paint

Lol, I know I only washed my car twice since the winter and then it was a waste of time.
