On my last post I was relaying my thoughts on geting another Alfa after selling my 166, for an Audi and then a Ford. Anyway I want to avoid the high car tax band and try runing an older 164/166. I would dearly love to run a 164QV after having one in 02, but not so sure about that now. I have been to look at a 166TS 2001 for under £1400. The cam belt has been replaced and car looks ok. Is there much difference between the 5 speed and 6 speed, will I miss that extra gear? Also is there any other differences when the TS became six speed, in 03 i think. Anybody wanting to sell a reasonable mileage TS pre march 01 let me know. I can't believe I paid nearly 12k for my 166Ti last september and I'm about to buy essentially the same car a year later for £1400. Funny that.
