Re: I know it's wrong but I have no choice!!!!
Mike - like other replies here, I'd say don't get a roof box! We bought our 156 saloon in early 2001 when my son was 4 months old. The boot isn't best in class, but it's sufficient. In fact, we've still got the 156 (I couldn't part with it) and my son is now almost 4 years old. AND we have a second son who is now 18 months old.
The 4 of us have been on a couple of UK holidays in the Alfa, and regularly trek up to Manchester and Surrey to see our folks for the weekend, and we've managed! Although the entrance to the boot is narrow, it does seem to accommodate lots of stuff, if packed strategically. It's usually full to bursting, with stuff crammed in the rear passenger footwells under the kids' feet too, but I'd rather that than put a roof box on top and spoil the lines!
Good luck sir.
