<strong>Ok, my dealer can get hold of a 156 2.0 JTS Veloce in either:
a) Metallic Pewter Grey with black seats/grey beading
b) Metallic Proteo Red with black seats/red beading
What's your opinion/preference on both colours?
I think the red will be really nice with the red beaded seats but can make the car a little too "boy racer" for me... the grey looks a bit more "executive" and looks good in sunlight...

It doesn't really matter what preference everybody here has, it's what you like. And as always, with an Alfa, choose with your heart and not the head. Everybody was telling me at the time to get the Alfa red as it would sell better, but once I saw proteo, it was the only color for me. Everybody else was driving around in silver or Alfa red.
I actually like the pewter grey in the 156. It's probably my 2nd choice at the moment.
