Well, phase 2 owner here, and I don't like the phase 3 much. Like most car styling revisions I think it "damaged" the original styling with a dodgy graft on; it doesn't look organic or like it belongs.

IMO this is true of most car restyling attempts, and certainly not an Alfa only thing. Extreme cases in point:
the Merc C class coupe/ CLC as it is now
the original '90s Hyundai coupe

About the only facelift in recent years that I prefer over the original was the 166; but that's probably because the original 166 front end was plain ugly!

(that's upset someone! )

the original hyundai coupe was what we scots would call boufin!!! The new one is far better.

Also, the new SLK is infinitely better than the old one, as is the Merc C Class (in my humble opinion obviously)
