I think the wheels look spot on, you should leave them Rob (Mysterio) might be able to give you a few hints on the lights and I'm sure there are numerous threads in the 156 tech lounge on doing the lights as well

Nice.
I have to say, I really like the shape of the 156 with the high loop spoiler.
Just nicely modded, just enough to make it look tasty.

Be careful when you're taking the indicators out so you don't scratch the paintwork. When I removed mine, I used one of those small screwdrivers for the phones with some masking tape on the tip.

the lowering kit makes a huge difference to it,the handling is much better,very little body roll at all and still comfortable.really happy with it now to be honest!!

Im the worlds biggest hater of modified cars ESPECIALLY Alfas but any mods you have done are all oem Alfa bits so fair play, you've kept it looking like an Alfa, no flames down the side and Wavin pipe exhausts
