Easy alteration to non-face lift 156 front grille, buy self adhesive chrome trim 35mm wide, cut out vertical plastic pieces from existing front grille, cut grille profile onto chrome trim to fit tightly either side of original grille, stick chrome strips over existing horizontal black plastic to give support,
will give a ville de este look, althought i prefer the non face lifted 156, much meaner and more purposeful looking.
£30 for 2mtrs of chrome trim. The chrome strip needs to overhang the horizontal black plastic attached to grille to hide it (or trim it back 5mm)..
I have seen this done on alfa156 forum a few years ago and looked very good..see it at (alfa romeo forum, different front grille)
Looks better than facelifted grille.
Edit; sorry didn't realise how old this thread was...
