Not sure about the body kit - ruins lines.
I bet my resonator replacement tube cost a tenth of that tacky cut and shut pipe bodge job.....

i take it we are talking about the one with the red leather?

not keen on the after market alloys and the bmw arial and to be honest i dont like the red leather, doesnt suit the car imo. but if every car was the same what would be the point.

While we're on the subject, what did you do for your resonator replacement?
I'm going to get rid of mine and was thinking of ordering some proper induction tubing from Green and piping it in.

I also need to replace the rubber link between the resonator and the throttle body - does anyone know the part number? :confused:

Oh, the 166 - I don't mind the front bumper and the sills, but the back of the 166 is beautiful as it is and no body kit can improve it. :)

The red leather just ouzes style!............Once its grows on you, youll never have another colour!!!!! Alfas are always right!!!

That car looks nuts!! The alloys are Khan which cost ££££££££..........Ive always wanted a set of them on a 166!!! That car is nice!!!

Does anyone have an alfa body kit forsale? Where should I be looking?

A corker as first read
Then phone and sat nav comptible...what a description ...BUT has it or hasn't it

AND A NEW CAMBELT>>>>WHAT A SELLING POINT

BUT even BIGGER BUT....it has a head rebuild too....superb but as the 166 watchers ken ,ken.....are the wee big ends to follow soon.....BUT it has the 3 kets now that must be worth at least 2.5 k according to all the good buyer guides.

I like it, especially from the rear. The red leather is so vulgar, so in your face, that I would sleep in front of the door for a week if I'd buy it, but I'd still go for it...

Leather in red suits GTV and may work in a red painted 166?

I'll post a piccy of my resonator replacement. Its some flexible alloy tube, easy to cut and smooth bends. Got it online from somewhere - may have been Greens? after spending £50 on silicone tubing that just wouldn't fit due to clearance on bonnet.

That rubber air pipe is expensive cos Alfa will only sell complete with the resonator box - what a bunch of tarts! Could be a scrappie job.
