Rams more air into the top of the wheel arch to increase drag. Helps keep the mpg down in boastworthy single figures.

It's radiators for the headlight ballasts.

What was the first car which started the recent trend for angular grilles and lights at the front? I want to say it was the Lambo SUV but that can't be right.

Big grilles I guess were started by Aston before BMW jumped the shark?

For a while I thought you were talking about the poor panel fit.

It's very Rover 75, isn't it. 🤮🤮😂
The black vents,bit below the dials, and gearknob need to go. Is too much black.
@Ascender what's the rest of the car like?
:lol:

It now reminds me of a nougat bar, I think that's what has happened.

The car is a 996 C4S in that lovely dark blue colour, which ironically goes well with a light-coloured interior, so the wood really does ruin it. Car looks in mint condition.

No :lol: , I was serious :| Not that it matters if it doesn't work with the exterior colour :cry:

Alfa 159 is one of the earliest pointy / aggressive front ends on a normal model I can remember, excluding specially messed around with sporty versions of more bland cars. Was still quite a simple design though unlike the vents on vents on vents thing we have going on now. I don’t think any massively stand out, it’s sort of been an evolutionary thing over the past 10 years or so and they’re all at it now.
