159 Head Lights On A 156 - Yes, Or No ?

Recommended Posts

Hi there, newbie here

(I'm not sure where to post correctly, so here it goes)

 

I inherit a 2006 Alfa 156, which I love (couldn't justify the price and size of the 159 to drive short distance to work)...

 

Anyway, my son also "forbids" me to sell it anytime, cause he loves the rear door handles!

 

Jokes aside, what I really love on the 159, are the aggressive looks of the front headlights and since my 156 has a cracked light I thought I could upgrade to the 159s?

 

If not, what's stopping me from removing the front (80's style) shield of the 156 headlights?

 

Is it possible, wise or dumb?

 

Please enlighten me.

Cheers.

just looking at the headlights (ignoring the mesh on the bumper, wheels and roof scoop) they dont look 'too' bad :Thinking:

Hmmmmm not sure, just looks like a 159 thought it would be 159 lights in a standard 156 body

Unless the whole front has had a 'face lift', it looks like a 159!

The corner (where the side panels meet w/ bonnet) is round on a 156!

Meaning; they would have had to also change the front 3-4 panels, plus the lights...

That may well be possible, but not financially viable.

Thanks for sharing. 😄

Good grief.

 

Why would anyone mod an Alfa ?

Its like trying to make Scarlett Johansson taller, removing J.Los bubble butt or adding boobs to Keira Knightley. Its just not done. They live for THEIR way, their was of being them. You want to take their identity away you lose what it is that makes them special.

Errr... (unlike cars,) no two women look the same, yet they do plastic surgery all the time to be noticed and be wanted (- the same w/ cars)

 

People mod their cars to be different and stand out from the crowd and/or have a car to their own taste - everyone is different.

 

P.S. in case of Knightley it'd be an good improvement !

On Kiera, I'd leave her teeth as they are :) charmingly crooked

 

One of the few starlets that has resisted in capping/veneering her teeth. I applaud her.
