Alfa 156 Spotted in Milwaukee

I know this is not Bimmer related, but forgive me - anyone here from Milwaukee? I was visiting some friends there this past weekend and saw an Alfa Romeo 156. I was surprised as heck to see one of these in the US. It must be a legal import too as it had WI plates.

I'm just curious to know how a car like this could be legally imported here. I'm sure it's expensive, but makes me wonder about bringing over the 130i hatchback and Alfa Brera I've always wanted

Would it be more possible that it just was a body kit? not sure why someone would do that though.

I'm originally from Milwaukee and visit 2-3 times a month.

I'm pretty sure it was a real one, I've seen enough of them in Europe to know...

This was the first opportunity I've had to spend some time in Milwaukee. You've got a nice bar and restaurant area downtown by the river there!

Was it red? I think the license plate was "ALFA156".


Anyway, I was just curious if anyone else had seen this. I've always had a soft spot for Alfas and was pretty excited to see a modern one here in the US.

That's the car I saw! It had a euro front plate if I remember correctly. I only saw it in oncoming traffic.
