Re: 166 Facelift!!
I know exactly what you're saying. The early 166 looks better in person than on paper whereas the facelift has the opposite effect funnily enough.
I always thought that when the 164 became the Super, it looked much more ellegant. Alfa thought so too as they continued the early theme on the QV's.
The 166 facelift just seems so pointless. It was a like a last minute idea to try to hike sales and male the 166 fall in line with the rest of the brand. It's like the GTV and Spider. Why the hell did they facelift them???!!!
