OK....so it's not really a mod on my car, but the original was smashed. Painted it Satin Black for easyness (hard to colour match alfa pink/orange/red).
It's preety low to the deck and my car isn't lowered. Also in the extended postion (which it is), you actually get MORE ground clearance. No wonder they are easily destroyed.

Hope Freeservers will show these pics..........

Eventually, I'll get the pics onto my proper site....

Yep, it does look good, Marlon.

I didn't appreciate the difference between the grille of the silverstone model and the standard 155 (and the paint finish on the bumpers).

Hey Marlon, is that an original part or is it the Lester kit? It looks damn big, a lot bigger than the Lester item shown here... or perhaps its just the angle???

It looks quite cheeky doesn't it? I want one.

Is that a gen-oo-ine part job?

How much are they?

It's the Lester part at about £120 (as opposed to £280 + VAT for Alfa part). Ordered it from Alfaowner.
The Silverstone splitter is adjustable (move it forward or backward). I have have it extended forward, the pic on alfaowner is backward. Alfa got into bother during the 19994 BTCC season 'cos of this and the adjustable (can be raised) rear spoiler. All the other teams complained.

Have you noticed any change in the handling department yet?

I've been able to pull off overtaking manoeuvres that Tarquini himself would be proud of.

Actually, I haven't noticed a difference, but I haven't been at high speed yet.

Get a lot of admiring/jealous/puzzled looks from the local Nova/Corsa crowd.
Even some strange looks from 156 drivers.
