Little spoilers look nice on the 156's. The big spoilers are not my cuppa on them. Too Scooby/Evo like!

If it's a Veloce or Sport Pack car fit a big fat fin, look's good on a black 156, if a Lusso leave it as is.

I prefer none... but if you really want one I think the little ones are far classier.

Re: BIG spoiler little spoiler or leave it alone??

I would personally calculate the downforce required to hold the back down, especially as it is front wheel drive....

And then base the size of your wing on that........

Re: BIG spoiler little spoiler or leave it alone??

Ooooh...Im undecided. I have a brand new Alfa high-style spoiler sitting in my loft ready to be painted and fitted....still cant decide whether or not to get on with it. My 156 is black too and I think they look quite nice.

I would either leave it alone or fit the big wing. Don't do it by half and stick a small one on there.

Re: BIG spoiler little spoiler or leave it alone??

i think they look good with no spoiler, and the big spoiler works on certain cars, but the small spoiler doesn't look as though its meant to be there.

Small boot lip if you must but I'd leave it alone and spend the money on making it go faster/ corner better/ stop quicker. Performance over looks any day

Re: BIG spoiler little spoiler or leave it alone??

If its a Veloce it'll have skirts and 16"s..

If you are going to go for the big wing, make sure you go the whole hog - 17" wheels, sports exhaust, lowering springs & shocks, GTA headlights..

Or alternatively, the Zender kit

Re: BIG spoiler little spoiler or leave it alone??

£65 you say? I'm from the bank of Nedistan and have a very interesting money making scheme you can join, all you have to do ....


... or put the money in the bank and when your brake pads/ shocks/ exhaust fail and put it towards an upgrade. A new panel air filter? nice meal with the wife? a nice pair of jeans? some decent earphones? pair of shoes? endless options to spend your money on

Nice meal with the bloke then ... unless you're single ... or a ... ok, let's not go there!

But it looks like you're running a bit low on shoes, I'd spend the money on another pair if I were you!
