closer to 147 GTA replica bumper than the 156.

looks ok, but not with the updated grille.

I like it a lot, it tidies up the fornt of the face lifted 156 which in my opinion was never as nice as the pre face lift ones. Th eproblem on the face lift cars is that there are too many contrasting shapes and it all looks a bit untidy, bit this bumper is basically three holes in the front and looks well smart to me, is it an Auto Delta part? If so you will have to sell your car to raise enough money to buy it

I think, this is Autodelta part, but they do not have it in offer. I think this bumper looks good, and maybe this is good idea to do something like this for the face lifted 156.

I like it a lot. I definitely prefer the facelift to the early 156. Larger grill is cool.

Looks great I never liked the look of the 156 GTA front bumper, this 147 GTA style one is much better

Looks good ... but putting a reg plate on the front would really ruin the lines ...

Yeah, but you could say that about any Alfa with an asymetrically mounted reg

Ah, I c! I quite like the plates mounted to one side personally.

Wouldnt it look even worse, though if you mounted it in the middle, it would obscure the bottom of the grille?

Yeah looks good, the facelift 156 didnt get a GTA bumper so anything over standard that isnt something a 13yr boy has draw like most aftermarket kits is good.

Loving the BBS alloys too

Well, personally I d like to see it with a front bumper like this one. I know its quite similar to the 147 GTA one, but this one is smoohther and the splitters are more blended in. I d also like to see it without the "nostrils" either side of the grille as I think it would look really good with the GTA type intakes below the grille and no holes either side of it. I reckon the skirts should be like the standard 156 ones-neat, descrete, like extnsions to the sills and they shouldnt finish any lower or higher than the front bumper, just the same level. The rear should be like the facelift 147 bumper, but with ground effect, again nothing wild and stupid-something like the current Clio 197. Rear bumper lowest point should be slightly higher than the front /skirts.
