Alfa 159 1.9 JTDm Sportwagon
Nice car, but can't see the heated seat switches and when did they do away the boot retainer rubber straps?
:cheese: It could be the straw Bazza as not everone is alfafflicted:lol:When you add up all the costs of owning a car, does an extra £200-ish per year actually tip the balance from affordable to not?
On the premise that the Singapore Slings never arrived until 2008 I guess that as the 166's never sold well in the first place then this lay in a dealer showroom un regd until 2007.After seeing this gorgeous 166 in a very nice shade of blue

I today contacted the seller with a possible view to buying a very late 166 and the colour really floats my boat ,never seen this colour in a 166 before but after the initial excitement and rush of blood to the head to buy the fact that the road tax is so expensive on these 2007 registered 166s is too much so sensibility won the day but boy what a looker.
Where the hell has this thing been until 2007? i thought i bought one of the last 166s in 2006 were there some 166s imported after they officially withdrawn in the uk?
WHY wood it need switches..It hasNice car, but can't see the heated seat switches and when did they do away the boot retainer rubber straps?
Wash yer mooth oot wie carbolic soap Herr Flick oops Eye mean Herr Mick:lol:..that's a lovely car.
It's sort of quaint what you Englanders consider expensive in terms of road tax..
V6s are cheap to buy for exactly this reason. That is a dirt cheap car - an 07 plate with reasonable mileage. So you save the capital cost and pay an extra £200 a year. That's (roughly) two tanks of petrol.When you add up all the costs of owning a car, does an extra £200-ish per year actually tip the balance from affordable to not?

Check oot the boot fur the 6 disc unitAm I right in seeing that it has a CASSETTE player and no CD Player? In a 2007 car? :wow:
..fuel is a bit cheaper alright, roughly the equivalent of £1.40/L at the moment.How much is a gallon of juice in the Emerald Isle these days? or should I say litre
HMMMMThis baby needs checked oot to see if it has sat nav etc.
Could be a de TI'd Ti..
Whit are ewe waiting fur Scotty...I like ewe...a forward planner ..|get round there now...Not mony 166's have the heated seat switches oan the steering wheel:cheese:Second City Motor Company is round the corner from me.
They are really nice decent guys. I was looking at little fiat 500's for the g/f to buy. They have alot of Alfa's in as they specialise in them and the own has a very cool spider.
As soon as he saw my crappy 147 in the green he wanted to buy it from me. But I might pop down and have a look as I do love the interior of the 166 and the older ones are dirt cheap.
If I ever get a family (When she falls asleep and I get her) then a 166 is definetly on the cards...
