Would I be out of line if I got some nice four leaf clover logo's and put them on the side of my car? You know the traditional Alfa ones with the white background.

How does the rest of the members feel?

I think they are a good addition - I have done this on mine. The mark of an enthusiast. They are supposed to be on all racing Alfas, my argument is that the 156 is a multiple championship winner in the ETCC, so it should wear them proudly! But I think they look good on any Alfa.

Just make sure you do it right - the cloverleaf stalks must point backwards on both sides, so make sure you get "handed" badges, ie they come as a left and right pair. Some do, some don't.

Cheers,

Nigel

Though recently I found similar ones on Italian ebay but in carbon foil, so I am waiting for these to arrive soon My be more subtle on a grey car than white background, even though that's the classic...

I have the same as you, they look great IMO. Don't use the carbon ones, they are not a proper pair (both the same). That will spoil the whole look!

Even my current ones were both the same. You can just rotate them so that the stalks face backwards. Triangles are symmetrical, so any side can be put as the base and you can use one sticker on both sides.
Well, as the stalks are slightly curved, you will end up with one stalk convex and one concave, so the stalks will not have the shame curvature on both sides, but nobody will notice....

I will see how the carbon goes on the grey paint and decide than. I can post a picture it in about a week, depending on Italian post service

Weird, they look like mine, which were a proper handed pair.

I will, and I will haunt you and point it out to everyone like the total anorak I am about this kind of thing

Same as me on that score then Nigel, . One of the reasons we didn't spec the turbine wheels for the Giulietta - I couldn't bear to have 2 wheels 'rotating' in the wrong direction all the time, .

Nigel, sorry, but nothing to point out. They arrived and ARE side specific, L + R (ignore the protective paper)

http://i229.photobucket.com/albums/e...cars/QFV01.jpg

Moreover, they are not printed but plotter cut out of different foils included carbon one and put together in multiple layers. My concern now is how they resis the sponge when I wash the car, but should be OK Not bad for 13 EUR considering Mito and Giulietta original Alfa ones are 30 EUR each....
