Incorrect - on a dry
road, and car with good tyres, ABS DOES increase stopping distance in almost all cases.
Cadence braking is to help prevent loss of steering control, and in the wet aquaplaning - exactly same as ABS. However, most people dont even know what cadence braking is, let alone be able to do it with any real effect (takes lots of practise) so ABS help provides this for the driver, so that on the occasions where its needed, its there.
Even in snow, ABS can increase stopping distance sometimes
If you skid, teh wheels can sometime build up a mound of snow infront that helps slow you!
However, basically any skid means you have lost full control. ABS helps prevent that. I believe there a bit in the manual waring that in certain conditions ABS activation may increase stopping distance
the little bit of wheel spin is meant to be there - basically alfa have designed the system to not be too intrusive - so there is still some driving actually left to do - dont worry, it wont be long before the car fully drives itself
