Re: Which 155 model if I decide to buy?
Ah... economics. The 155 was built using the Fiat Tipo platform. If they'd built it as a pukka RWD they would have lost a fortune on it.. they just don't sell enough to have a dedicated platform. Tipo (for pricing, packaging etc.) needed to be FWD.
You can see the problem.. the 159/Brera/Spider is a co-developed (with GM) platform.. but it is expensive and so far the sales have been disappointing, even though it is a quality piece of kit.
And it's a quality piece of FWD kit.. (shoulda made it RWD maybe.. a bit more expensive.. maybe a few more sales..? Who knows...)
No bullets for Chaingun..
