What used Alfa Romeo 166 saloon will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Alfa Romeo 166 saloon?

Stick with the 2.0-litre model for the lowest running costs: it returns an official 29.1mpg average economy. Choose the 2.5 V6 and fuel economy drops to 23.7mpg, while its insurance rating is higher. The 3.0 V6 is thirstier still, with a 22.6mpg official average.

Labour rates are reasonably high, too, although cheaper than those of its key German rivals. On average, you can cut your bills by about 25% if you visit an independent Alfa Romeo specialist rather than a franchised dealership.
