Hi all,

New owner of a 166 Tspark here. I take it as a good sign that I saw another 166 on my way to work this morning. I'm slowly working my way through the Italian Marques:

Moto Guzzi LeMans 1000
Ducati Laguna Seca F1
Lancia Delta HF Turbo
Fiat Punto :eek:
Alfa 166 (present)

I guess it starts to get expensive after that:) Oh, and I've made Smaky's aquaintance.:thumbs: Looking forward to lurking less and posting more. Cheers,

_Tom

naw..

... no bikes at the moment, and probably not for a while.:( Love Guzzis though. Massively over-engineered engines. My LeMans had Conti replica exhaust pipes that sounded great (not sure what the neighbours thought). I'm in Wilts., work in Swindon. :thumbs:

Tom Welcome to AO :thumbs:

If it was a red 166 then that would be K9D, he is a regular on here

My Father in law is into Guzzis, he currently has a Daytona, Lemans and a Griso, he won;t let me near them :mad:

thanks guys

Aryan, mine is Odessy blue I believe 2001 tourismo w/o many (any) options. I crave a CD player. 6-speed box, though.:cool:

Jay, >>a Daytona, Lemans and a Griso<< that's a serious habit! The 166 I saw was dark coloured, maybe blue or black - I was too far back to see, Jct. of the A420 and A350. I did see a metallic green one in Swindon too - no badges on he back 03...

If it was me I must be lost, but it was dark at 5:50am :lol:

I'm in Trowbridge, another 166 in the area is always good :thumbs:, if you have been to Smakys in the last week you may have seen my poor little 146 with all its bendy valves :cry:

K9d - Yup, that was me. Rad isn't leaking, but it's seen better days. Thermostat is all over the shop, so I'm going to get Smaky to sort both out next week. Sorry I missed you. Had a quick chat with a guy in a 156 sportwagon. We'll have to get together as I'm only over in Corsham.:D

>>did you see my 146?

Must have done. Smaky uses as a landmark to give directions.:) I would normally wander over to have a look, but I was preoccupied with my own motor.
