Alfa's 166, how many out there.....

not sure if this is an easy figure to get, but does anyone know how many 166 are on Irish roads.

I usually don't see another 166 on my travels, but a week ago i saw three during the one drive, which got me thinking.

any ideas??

A lad I was looking at his 166 for earlier in the year told me there were only 40 taxed in Ireland

funny, just seen Topgear on Dave, Jezza was just reviewing the 166....

he loved it, but said you will be lucky to get a 2nd hand one as Alfa didn't sell many.. and the depreciate fasted that a lead ballon falls out of the sky..

but other than the depreciation there totally lush..

It was a nice one that he had as well, a facelifted V6, I'd have mine in Rosso though
