Second they are two types of people on the road...
a)people that hate me, cause my car is beautiful and I am like
that behind the wheel and they will do anything to destroy my day...these people wont ever let me do an U-turn by stopping and allowing me to do so (most of them a BMW,AUDI,VW drivers)
b)People that like my car and will slow down or stop and allow me to do the U-turn in order to see my car!!!...probaly you wont beleive me that some people even take photos with their mobile phones while I am passing slowly or waiting at the traffic light.
On the main topic...if you a good enough driver you will be able to make the U-turn in no time even with Alfa Romeo....and like we say here "you can not go to the end inside a woman (you know where) and still go to heaven"...or You cant have such a quick steering and at the same time have a turning cycle of 8metres. If you want something in the middle you will end up with toyota corolla or MB E-class
about the front suspension...Alfa Romeo used a lot from the Formula 1 technology in order to build the 156/147/GT front suspension...which makes front tires "stay" (I dont want to start talking about geometry here) were they should be in all cases...for optimal road handling. That is the main reason why AR is the only FWD car with 250bhp and Autodelta's GTA 328bhp FWD AR are faster then RWD BMW M3 on the TRACK...keep in mind the M3 is an icon for RWD cars.
Anyways as long as I am happy with my car I really dont care what other people think or say about me or the car.
