  1. Alfa 164 & 166
    Dear All, I just purchased an Alfa 166 2.0 TS to replace my old 155 which was showing signs of "Rusticus Maximus" and therefore was parted out to someone who could afford to rebuild it rather than scrap it. As with most 166's, my car has no ICS code. I tried Alfa Romeo Museum and my local...

    If anyone is interested I have an ICS available. The ICS itself works and so does the front panel, however there is some damage to the ribbon cables connecting the two and some of the pins on one of the connectors are bent but nothing that can't be repaired by some one with a little more...

    Can anyone tell me the best way of getting hold of an ICS unit. My 166 3.0 lusso still allows the c.d and radio to play, but shows no display for anything including the sat nav. Any ideas of the problem gratefully received! Thanks

    Just bought a 52 plate 166 twin spark. The ICS works but you cannot see the display. So, can anyone tell me if the v6 versions are identical (or will the trip computer settings need to be reprogrammed)? Does anyone have one to sell with the code in grey, or one in silver with a silver gear...

    Hello, The problem is that my stereo makes a popping sound, as if the connections are bad, for about 1-5 minutes when i start the car, only if it is cold. If i turn on the stereo without starting the engine, there is no problem. The connections on the back of the ICS have been checked, and any...
