Narrowly missed out (by 5 minuted ) on a lovely Alfa 166 this afternoon. So now I'm contemplating doing something very rash ...
1996 (N) 9000 CSE 2.0 EcoPower (lpt), 5spd manual. The spitting image of my old one, Scarabe Green (with its fair share of scratches) / Sand Beige (rather worn but would come up OK with the right treatment).
Has the original stereo + CD player, DCC, cruise control. Manual seats. One rear window doesn't work. Everything else does.
Indicating 92,000 miles, with a sticker from (presumably) the auction from whence it came stating that this is unwarranted but believed genuine.
No service history
Number plates from 'Hale Carriage Company', 0151 number - might contact them to see what they can tell me. Last change of owner December 1999, according to the RAC.
Clutch is nice and light, no noise at all from the timing chain. Starts and drives as it should. Slight weeping from the cylinder head.
Head says 'no', heart says 'yes'.
