Blacklines are all still fairly new and relatively low mileage though, when you've done 80-90k and your shocks are worn out it'll be a different story.
Don't disagree with that one bit. I suppose you could add bushes to the list too. And then fitting hard (usually cheap), non-spec tyres too.
I would add also that out of all the Alfa's I've had this GT blackline I've got now is by far the best of all the 147/156/GT chassis cars I've driven - for comfort, ride and handling. Still I suppose having a fleet 1.8 stuck out front is always going to make it ride better than with the heavier JTS or JTDm (Hmmmm....90kg extra - that's the weight of a large man stuck under the bonnet - still, we all know that bloke pedals hard!!)
Did they do the softer spring/firmer anti-roll bar upgrade to the GT like they did to the 147 in 2005 too?
