156 facelift and/or headlight change

Hi guys,

Been looking at 156's but keep seeing a few different faces on them. Has anyone able to post up the original and any facelifts for me so I can compare? I know it's had 1 maybe 2 facelifts, but I keep finding modded pics

Also, so any of the facelifts have the smart looking 'spider eye' headlights... like the new 159/Brera, or is there a way to convert the headlights with a kit to look like these? Got a thing for aggressive headlights, don't ask why as I have no idea!

Cheers all

Re: 156 facelift and/or headlight change

There was only one major facelift which was late 03. So some 53 plated cars have the new front end and all cars on later plates. The lights from the 159 didn't go on the 156. Yo can tell the differnce as the lights are bigger as are the grill and badge.

Here you go.

Re: 156 facelift and/or headlight change

As above. Although the Mk1 cars had a very mini-facelift in 2002 (when the JTS engine came out).The little 'rubbing strips' in the bumpers and the fog light surrounds were painted in body colour instead of being left black.

The Mk2 headlights do indeed have a passing resemblance to the 159 lights but actually are nothing like them
