I can tell this guy doesnt know much about cars, but just has a big mouth and a great desire to be seen on youtube.
This seems to be a trend, like anyone with no experience / knowledge / credentials , if they have a big mouth and get themselves in the spotlight for as many likes as they can get - act like specialists. they seem to have a lot of followers too, imagine what they know about anything 😂
this video is like giving your 166 to any random guy on the street to do his rewiev . i bet this guy drives a hybrid golf or such
¬ did he say nearly 3 meters long?
¬his problem is the windscreen washer fluid filler neck
¬i think the front grille really is aftermarket
¬very nice video with the boot full of dirty chothes lol
¬audio-visual and sat nav entertainment . lol. thesat nav is entertaining when it is set in italian I guess . visual??
¬what if the car is left hand drive, the perfect ish balance goes away, with the battery on the left? he knows his stuff. they must have designed the car RHD, and then forgot to switch battey on the LHD😂
¬cast aluminium door handle??! does this guy know what aluminium looks like, and then what is cast aluminium?
¬most comfortable car seats lol. he must have not sat in too many cars
¬embossed vs embroidered. look it up . momo badge is embossed, the badge is embroidered
wowww!!! "so the engine warning light triggers the engine warning light so the engine warning light stays on"
this guy really knows cars! the engine warning light doesnt go dim if its on for too long, especially since its an led and not a conventional bulb. then you can clearly see that someone hid the engine warning light by painting over it with a marker pen. (probably because the engine light remained on because the engine light being on caused the engine light to light up )
AND THE FAULT IS THE ENGINE LIGHT IS ON. TYPICAL ALFA . I have a feeling we will be quoting this guy alot from now on.
ok...moving on... so that is the dashboard and buttons light intensity switch by the main headlights switch. some cars, that do not have auto levelling xenon lights, have the switch he is talking about. did he say self steering headlights because they are bi-xenons? lol
¬left stalk- there is no lights switch, he just showed us the main headlights switch. its ust the standard, common in 99% of thecars, high - low beam switch.
¬ proper italian horn - this guy really knows car horns. (actually they are made by Fiamm )
the hazard lights switch - randomly placed. l guess if its not in the same position as in a passat or a golf, then its random. try jeep cherokee for example, but this guy would never find it in a jeep. he would probably say it is so american of then not to install one in the jeep. typical american 😂
¬ so now we kow the car was ready in 1996 but they launched it two years later because they wanted to install sat nav like bmw and mercedes, and the sat nav was just rebranded, took them two years to rebrand the siemens satnav . typical italian or typical this guy?
ASR anti-slip-regulation. that is not stability control. so you can say stability control is in the hands of the driver at all times. Alfa calls stability control VDC, vehicle dynimics control, and is introduced in facelift cars I believe.
astray lid is slow to open because 1. its an old car, 2. the ashtray is not properly seated
¬just an ordinary ceiling lol.
¬espresso in the cubby hole. yep, good ideea. yes the recess in the cubby is for usb sticks , especially in 96 when they designed it. it could also be a technical solution to make room for the cubby lock mechanism ? I m guessing that since its not laser operated.
¬what a surprise, the leather is the same throughout the car!
wiper overlap conoisseur
¬I am not going to comment on his evaluation of the driving dynamics of the car since he clearly doesnt know cars- just one thing , since he is on about being lowered 40mm, and having poly bushes and bilstein shocks - they why in the h. would you not slow down when you see speed humps? and why didnt the owner of the car ***** slap him on the spot? just a thought.
¬side light bulb hard to change? for a monkey maybe
¬looks like he prepared for this review by reading older reviews. the comment about company cars and diesels. but then why not read them carefully or try to understand what they were on about?
¬mafioso black - yep, thats the factory colour code denomination. id$$t. but they should have tried harder with it , because after 20 years it has faded in a few spots. yeah.
last real big mad alfa romeo, after this alfa, they got sensible : yep. they also put a 3.2 instead of the 3.0 , made the giulia that beats m3 m4 and so on, made the stelvio, 3.2 in the 159
not sure what he meant about galvanized , better galvanized ?!
!!!!!!speedbump you moron!!!watch out!!
¬3.2 in the 166 is not less reliable , and its a Busso as well. they used a version of the gm engine in the 159. just for the record.
¬huge car? hmm have a look at audi a8 or s class, or american cars. after he said it he passed an 7 series of the same vintage on the right side of the road.
So to conclude, I will have to dismiss his review and consider it utter rubbish and this guy a disgrace and a wa%&er.
If you read this furiousdriving and slow thinking man, please let me know your take on my review of your review .😂
I am sure this guy will become an internet legend, at least here anyway
