Hi

i'm New here, as you may guess, I have recently had my first Alfa (a 156 TS) writen off, and so i am trying to decide whether to take the plunge and get a 166 2.5 Sportronic....

can anyone tell me things i should look out for and whether it is a good idea....

for a W reg what would acceptable milage be?

also where could i pick up a GSM card for the telephony kit?

cheers :)

Hi and welcome Pf. Did your 156 slip on something nasty?
You wouldn't be the Pf responsible for the troublesome one on big Brother would you? Best thing you did, getting rid of that one!

if it's the inbuilt GSM phone you can just pop a full sized SIM in - i got a tesco value one for 3 quid and it works a treat :D

Alternatively, if you want to use a normal small sim alfa do an adaptor....i've got one kicking about somewhere that's no use if you want it - only paid a fiver for it.

In terms of the car itself, just look out for the usual things...cam belts done at the right time, seems like it's well looked after etc....not too many "gotchas" with the 166 - it shares the 156's love of suspension bushes i suppose so listen for clonks.
