Ok then. I never really showed off my 95 Q4 but what the heck.
Everything in stock except I added wood steering wheel by Momo (designed to match the original design and work with factory airbag) and white gauge. Little tacky I know.
One picture shows later style overhead console design without sunroof. A rare scene for US owners since all 94-95 164 sold in US had sunroof.
Of corse original wheel would never look this nice. They are brand new set purchased from Difatta brothers.

Nice car, TJ. Do you have pics of the center console (by the handbrake) of your car?

Well, I think Rory's idea of holding off on comments is a good one, but takes too much willpower.
I think it looks great. Did that wheel come with the center colored logo?

The other cars posted are all beauts too!

Airbag is from late model 164 (1996 and up) or GTV/Spider. Can't remember which car it came from but they are all same. The steering wheel is also sold as for GTV/Spider, purchase new 5 years ago on ebay UK. Never seen another one like it ever. May be it was a one of kind custom made?

Here's mine. Paint isn't perfect in some areas. But still, an amazing car.

All very nice 164's, Bravo! I too would be interested in a sportier steering wheel but would want to keep the airbag functionality intact.

Hard to believe that these cars are 12-16yrs old. I remember like it was yesterday walking into the local dealer and picking the color, options etc. I'll never forget picking up the car for the 1st time, around dusk and the dealer is giving me the run through. The 1st time he turned on the lights I was like WOW...look at that dashboard light up! Alfa come back soon!!
