They really are. I still hanker after my 2002 166. Had it for 6 years and loved driving it. My 159s were nice too, but I think the 166 will be the one car I'll always regret selling.I think they're absolutely beautiful. And I have a few pre facelifts too, not enough room on new signature for all I have.
Such a timeless and elegant design. I also think it's the best built interior of any Alfa I've driven or owned. A really solidly built car.
