I remember seeing an unfinished project on ebay last year where someone was in the process of putting a brera front end onto a 156 ...

looking at the link, and reminding myself how and where the lights sit on the 159, i think they would look terrible on the 156.

on the 159 they are sat recessed under the bonnet, and back from the front wing. would not look right at all.

I can confirm that.... even if its possible..... it looks kak!

The light eperature on a 159 is long and squared.... but on a 156... its deeper and rounded.

DONT DO IT>>>>

Its not rocket science, they COULD be made to fit and look ok. They would have to be recessed more than that photoshop though and tilted down and turned in a bit. If the scale is right it might be an idea to make the aperture narrower by adding bits below the lightsin the bumper. It would be quite a bit of work but it could be done

The boot lid, rear lights, rear wings on the facelift are all different too.

So it needs an Ar$e lift as well as a facelift.


IMO the original 156 is a better looking car than the 156 facelift and the 159 anyway.
