Sam Gamgee- I no m8 n i do, my m8z n co like it but i just kept wondering what the Alfa community would think. dought ill be going to any meets any time soon lol.
Ah right, when I was 18 I modified my Mondeo Mk1, so I suppose it could be worse?
I'm now 23, and have learned an extremely valuable lesson: The closer to factory / stock a car looks the better!
Certain mods can make a car look heaps better, such as upgraded alloy wheels, interior swaps (For leather etc), getting a car lowered etc etc...
As long as a modification goes well with a car, then it will look great, but to me, a great big black stripe down a 156 looks shambolic sadly, it does look horrendous.
I don't mean to be insulting mate as I've been there myself and that's why I can now judge,
Luckily, you have a Sport Pack model, so you already have the decent wheels, bodykit, and suspension, you now just need to ditch the stripe and spend your cash on something more worth while bud,
OR, keep it if you really like it, but it does look a bit of a joke with the stripe mate.
