Buy With Your Heart, Not Your Head! Will Put A Smile All Over Your Face Every Time You Get In It! — I owned this a few years ago and what a great car, 3.0 V6 Superlusso, was one of 200 built with the Ferrari Block engine like in the old Lancia Thema B. Was a very quick car and sounded gorgeous. It used to to Torque steer left when you put your foot down hard from standing starts but handled great. Rare car these days and very hard to find. Engine parts where silly money expensive and was the downfall of the old Alfa in the end...Very comfy car and roomy to. One of the few cars I actually miss driving from day to day great fun!

Pros: Powerful and responsive, handled great

Cons: parts where very expensive, head gasket was over £500 and 36 man hours to fit! ouch!

I Loved This Car, And It Saved My Life.... — Beautiful, powerful, economical... fantastically expensive to service.... But, very crash worthy... Was involved in a huge accident in this car, and walked away. Even the doors stil openned, whilst the body had been twisted..

Pros: Engine note, handling, power..

Cons: Expensive services..

My First Nice Car :) Bargain Of The Century Second Hand — Very nice looking car. 1st of the Alfa reborn cars without reliability or rust issue. Confortable and very sporty feel for a big car. Wish I had the V6 though :(

Pros: Shape, handling, reliability, affortability second hand

Cons: Not much at all actually. Depreciation if you bought it new

I liked the 164, I think it is priced too high but I am sure there is wiggle room. I have owned several Alfas, so I am familiar with repairs and maintenance. Read More
