A small praise for 164/166 AR!

Post by Shaohao » Tue Jan 12, 2021 12:00 pm

Hello!
I am a happy owner of a 166 2.5 v6 diesel 2000 and I cannot say a bad word about this car. Of courseit has its pros and cons but it is not bad, and I don't understand the amount of complaining I see online or among my so-called friends. Sure, A rear suspension is a little weak (bushings on the steering knuckle), and front is terribly soft but that is probably because the engine weighs its own! Fuel consumption is not that big a deal with a calm drive you can go down to nice number, but who would want that? If you own an Italian steed like that, that goes mmmmmmmmm with its V6, it is something beautiful! That AR is very good for the urban and rural driving both!

166 V6 diesel does not exist... at least not from Alfa factory. Diesel on 166 is R5 ALWAYS and size of 2.4. Valves on the engine either 10 or 20 but size and cylinder count always the same.
