Yeah - a body kit that actually doesn't spoil the car

That's a photoshop from Croatia, it realy looks nice and follows original alfa romeo and gta lines.
I think you could sell many bodykits if they would look like that.

Re: Alfa 166 GTA-look bodykit..

You have gotten rid of Maserati mirrors and added those from a Punto...

To be honest, the only thing I like about it is the darkened front lights and the wheels. I reckon doing that to a normal 166 will make it look pretty good.

Re: Alfa 166 GTA-look bodykit..

Like the idea, but how many would you have to sell to re-earn the moulding costs and start making profit?

For me, if I was starting to upgrade my car I could have been interested. But mine's just finished, and I don't want to start over again going back to sub-optimal fitting forms, colour differences and so on. Once was enough and I like the car how it is now.

Although reactions on my car on this forum are pretty nice, I have also received opinions describing my 166 as the ultimate proof of total lack of taste, and even advise to please go and buy a BMW and stop driving and ruining the 166. So, be prepared the 166 drivers are a lot less in favour of body kits and optical tuning than the 156 people. A lot of them think the original parts and shapes should remain that way (in general). I find the photoshop picture fitting in with the car's own forms very well, so there should not be too big a problem. It's not like some generic monster bumper that is made to fit on every Audi, Opel, Beemer and Japanese car.

If the initial investment is not too high, there are chances. Good luck!

Thanks mate.. Where I can see pics of your car ?

Absolutely, prototype and mould need a lot of work and money, but I did not find any really nice bodykit for Alfa 166. I think, GTA bodykit looks really cool on this car.. this is not some "Fast & Furious" design.

I can only say that Tjeerds's 66 is one of the most beautiful cars I ever saw.

Re: Alfa 166 GTA-look bodykit..

I don't think it ever sold a GTA kit.

The side skirts and wheels are nice. The front bumper too big.
