I like the look of that one - interesting colour. Price is okay given it's from a dealer.

If you're doing that sort of ks, the car will love it and so will you! Keep the servicing up.

As a replacement for the Audi I suggest you just go for a 156 V6 manual (6 speed). The 159 is quite a bit heavier. The 156 is much cheaper but use the extra cash to get the cambelt and water pump...

Here's what I did Alfa related on New Years Day. No 164s involved this time but two other Alfas.
