2006 Alfa Romeo 166Review
Riido writes:

Everyday Car That Never Fails To Put A Smile On Your Face — One of the greatest saloon cars of all. Gorgeous exterior, beautiful interior and heaps of space in the rear. V6 engines are a gift from heaven. Unfortunately has no RWD or 4WD option. Electronics may have trouble (even though they're made by Bosch)

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Wonderful manifestation of Italian design and soul.

Cons: FWD

2006 Alfa Romeo 166 Review
Lieven says:
I own this car for over 11 years now. Bought it in Germany for 9000 EU at 69.000km. Drove 200.000 kms since then. I will never sell it. Its beauty and style are timeless, it is very reliable and extremely economical (10 years average of 5.9 l/100km, negligible maintainance costs) The steering is very sharp and precise and the engine has lots of power. It offers a lovely sporty ride (except on bad roads), has a huge trunk, a spacious interior and super ergonomic seats. The only flaws are tire rolling noise and its behaviour on bad roads. The last real Alfa.

Handling Ranked 2010 BMW 5 Series worse.
"The steering and the throttle response of the Alfa is much better than the BMW, as to my experience. The Alfa is much more accurate in cornering at high speed. On the other hand, the BMW is better on bad roads and is quieter. "
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2010 BMW 5 Series worse.
"That is my subjective appreciation. Did not measure."
