Is the facelift aluminum suspension worth swopping for?

I have a pre-facelift 159 3.2 q4, I was wondering that since alfa managed to shave off 40+kg with the facelift version by using lighter wheels and aluminum(hence lighter) front suspension wishbones etc, is it worth purchasing these aluminum wishbones?

Has anyone out there done it and how can I go about purchasing these facelift aluminum wishbones?

Personally I wouldn't bother - you are unlikely to feel the difference. Just leave the wife/girlfriend/family dog at home.

I had a 2006 159 and now have a 2008 Brera, so I can't really compare it, but I'm sure it wouldn't be worth it.
