As the thread say's I've finally thrown caution to the winds :rolleyes: and bought a 3 litre 2000 W reg 166 Super :inlove: , with only 49k on the clock, one owner from new, good service history, and looks immaculate :inlove: . I am so happy I could weee, I pick her up on Sat 27th.
Here are some pics. If I can get them to upload :confused:

nice one - I was going to go for that one but couldn't get things together in time. looks great :cool:
Thanks mate, spotted it on ebay with only 7 minutes left and a bottle of wine on board and decided to take the plunge :) . Having said that you are one hell of a lot closer than me so it would have been a bit less of a trek for you, but I have the finance after my GTV was Murdered :cry: and my whiplash/injurys claim settled :) , and I NEED a V6 Alfa, cos my V6 2.5 Litre Ford Probe is very pretty but she's not an ALFA.:lol:
I hope and pray that I haven't dropped a Boll**k with this but who dares wins.

Congratulations. I knew I'd seen that 166 somewhere.

:)

I was down the cellar earlier digging out CAR from July '98 for the GTV V6, Fiat Coupe, Pug 406, Cougar Giant test and they were raving about the 3.0 litre V6. Said shame it's not in the 156.

You bought a cracker of an engine. Nice long drive home to get used to it.

I've been keeping an eye on V6 alfa's for a while and this is one of the best ones I've seen in the last 6 months so should be fine, I even emailed the guy and asked him a few questions and he seems really honest and gave good answers. I desperately want to get a V6 now after having my 166 t spark for nearly a year. Unfortunately my wife seems to think that decorating the house is more important - strange things women!
