That angle really captures the beauty of the front end, gorgeous (not a fan of the wheels myself, but each to their own)
Thanks for positive comment about 'Rovero' . Yes the angle and light highlights some of the more subtly aggressive parts of the often disrespected p3 front end., it also shows how much the 916 is a work of art and beauty. The photo captures that feeling I got when I first saw one..... I was memorised and in a trance just staring at it.... 'Rovero' is very proud of his refurb and has attracted quite a lot of interest from people. The wheels are alfa wheels but I guess not everyone's taste... I still have the originals though or a set of the Enzo that were an original p3 option..... He is nearly finished now and whilst in the garage he is getting more layers of wax.......... He's an 05 reg so one of the last of the V6 gtvs ever made......

Absolutely love the Phase 3. I prefer the longer nose I actually think it makes the car look more balanced in profile. I really like the 18" wheels too - Turbine I think they're called? - from the Giulietta. If you could get some of the 8C style 5-hole/horse shoe Giulietta rims for it I think they'd look best - but this is just personal taste. I have those in the dark grey on my own red Giulietta and they show the callipers off nicely. Great that yours is also the 3.2 V6. Such an overlooked and under rated car and a pretty rare sight on the roads so I reckon values will go up. Although its a 2005 it was developed in an era when some car makers were really getting the most out of front wheel drive cars in handling terms. I keep looking at P3 916 Spiders online and as I turn 40 next year I feel a midlife crisis might be in order! ;)
