my friend's 156 has the white dials and I think they look lovely in green at night. I assume that the red on black are red at night?
Pete - the answer is maybe. Up until last Thursday, I was going to go for a new, very fast French hot hatch, but I thought **** it, a used 156 is cooool; a Clio172 might be faster, but if I have another hot hatch, I might just scream (Nova SR, Uno Turbo, Golf GTi, Golf GTi, Golf GTi - there's a pattern emerging here!). It's time for something suave and elegant, and I'm tired of the boy racer/baseball hat jibes, which would be compouned by ClioSport ownership. It's time to grow up a bit as well guess. And I'll still have the GTV6 for when I want to play the hooligan.
I might see what I'll get for the Golf against a used 156 this weekend, so I'll keep you posted.
