A lot of people will say that the GTA style kits look best, I have to agree.... BUT all cars are of personal choice, but making an already gorgeous Italian car better can be a challenge...

Ie, I personally (everyone is different!) do not like to see "Lexus" style back lights on anything other than a nice Japanese motor, they suit them. But that is my choice and why I will not have them on my car!... now dark tinted back lights on a black 156/147/GT etc, look really good!!!

I also do not like "Warrior" style kits as this picture shows....

^^^^ This is £160 on E-bay... I mean FFS!!!

I cannot see you having a great deal of luck getting anything bodykit wise secondhand as they will leave the rest of the car a mess... unless it from a scrappers???

Just my 2p's worth!!!

most people i assume who drive alfas prefare to make them handle even better go quicker than trying to make them exterior wise something they are not, that why there is probably hardly any kits available ,market dictates that i assume

STUNNINGLY GOOD

no one buys them new as they look awful..... ITS NOT A CORSA

Im not a fan unless it looks like it should be there, like the Zender.

Colourcode the bumpstrips, lower it and put a nice set of OEM wheels on either GTA Teledials or the 18" GT multis or 159 ti replicas - Much better than a bodykit IMO

I still think that the original, non side skirt, 156 looks fantastic when lowered with a nice set of alloys

Body kits are not as fashionable as they were a few years back. If you want to change the looks try lowering it, changing the wheels and a boot spoiler. Lexus lights are old hat but jewel side repeaters a subtle mod. There are lots of kits and styling available fron Zender, Lester, Carzone, Linextras and RGM. If its what you want go for it.

You're looking for a bodykit for one of (if not THE) best looking car(s) on the road?

My advice to you - sell it and by a focus or corsa.

you can get some noce ones, that enhance the look, not change it completley, like that bag'o'schite up there.

i want some stuff off ebay

this front splitter/bumper

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ALFA-ROMEO-15...arts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM?hash=item53de0d25d3

this rear bumper spoiler - zender style but all the across

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ALFA-ROMEO-15...arts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM?hash=item2303a4cfd0

and these side skirts

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ALFA-ROMEO-15...arts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM?hash=item2ea9a1818e




this 360 style nose in interesting me, in a strange kind of way, it sort of suits the lines of the 156.:eek::D

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Alfa-Romeo-15...arts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM?hash=item230515c51e


and if i was choosing another spoiler, id have this, touring car styleee:D

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ALFA-ROMEO-15...arts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM?hash=item518f631b18

a few very hard to find zender bits would do me nicely, i just want skirts for mine, then lower it:thumbs:
