With all due respect (you know whats coming don't you) you do talk tosh sometimes . The 156 constantly runs out of travel on dips and rises - my 159 never has. The 159 rides better than any Msport beemer (and almost any Audi) and, according to european tests, is the best handling car in its class. The beemer may be slightly better on a race track, but try telling that to the drivers who spin the things off the road in the wet.

As for the 156 (which I love) being a better car than the 159 - yeah, right.
