Re: Happy Ten year anniversary 156.
I was just thinking the same, was following a silver one the other day, still thought "wow that still looks stunning".
Had 2 Alfa 156's in my time, the 1st phase, and the later 2004 onwards car.
Loved the very positive feel through the steering, both cars could be made to dance through the corners...loved them.
Had one of my ex girlfriends in my first 156 (car was about 7/8 years old at the time)...she says "I can't believe it, a brand new car and the writing on the gear knob is coming off already", I replied with "its about 8 years old!, and done 80k miles"....she couldn't believe it! hehe
It's such a sleek design, still feel the urge to buy another "just in case".
