Looks great, did you modified your old one or can you buy this?

I quite like the grill though SCGT, any ideas of where you bought it or if anymore can be purchased? I'd assume you'd need a custom mesh to go with it aswell?

Grill makes it look almost like a Veyron from the front aswell.

I think this mod will look better when the Giulia finally appears on UK roads.
At the moment I'm not so sure.

Looks good.

Might look even better with the Brera bonnet badge?

I've been musing on doing this mod myself. Is this a purchasable option wherever the 159 is now being sold?

The 159 was last sold in 2010?

Did you cut the slats off the grille and then re-spray with Chrome paint?

Photoshop.

The car is in exactly the same position in each photo, also the reflections on the chrome and the windscreen plus lighting are exactly the same too. The only way that could be the case is if the camera was on a tripod and the part was swapped over in 2 mins - unlikely.

Opening pic shows a nice shiny 'gloss' car and the side by sides are 'stealthy matt'.

Nice retouch work though

Yeah I photoshopped a Giulia grille on a 159 to see for myself from a distance if it looked any good.

The OP's looks like the real thing, the other photos are obviously photoshopped - I don't think he needed to explain that!
Too many beers last night Tony?

Brilliant, I've been loving the look of the Giulia grille since first seeing the quadrifoglio.

Eh?
I think you need to follow the thread more carefully
Of course I don't mean his 159!!
I'm not one of those people that refer to their car as 'she' or 'her', god forbid 'lady', I've always found that weird.
