Alex you are jusg going on and on. At some point you have lost track of what you really believe in. It seems to me you are just average driver with an alfa. Any good driver will accept that its much better and much fun to drive a RWD car. if you statement of safer car was true believe me BMW and merc would have gone for it. RWD is premium class and FWD is low class
I thought about giving up on this thread, since you're an opinionated, frustrated little driver, but I'm not perfect either, so here goes...
I come from a family that have always been in the world of sports car: my driving experience ranges through cars that you will probably never have the chance to drive. When I was still in Italy I was subscribed to a car sharing club, which allowed owners to share their cars and try others on track days: among the most noticeable ones I have driven there are cars like Porsche 911*, Porsche GT3, Porsche Cayman, Porsche Carrera 4S, Ferrari 575*, Lamborghini Murcielago, Ferrari 360 Challenge, Ferrari 430, BMW M3 and M6, BMW Z4, Mercedes CLK and SLK, Lotus Elise, Subaru Impreza, Lancia Delta Integrale, Mitsubishi Evo, not to mention all the Alfa Romeo models that me or my family owned during the years (you can find a list on my very first presentation post) and most of them on track and even before I was old enough to have a driving license. If this makes me an average driver, then yes, I am one
*the ones with the asterisks are the ones my family still owns.
This is not a matter of what good drivers think, the problem is that there are a lot of bad drivers out there that drive saloons, and giving an average driver a car that can perform better but is more prone to put you in difficult situations is stupid and dangerous.
It's not a case that most of the RWD saloons come from Germany: taking a drivers license in Deutschland is a serious and expensive business, where you have to go through mandatory tests and driving hours in specific conditions (rain, night, autobahn etc..). German brands have made a choice of producing cars which can give a better driving experience provided they're driven by prepared drivers.
If you gotta stick to a saloon you gotta accept the fact that a FWD is safer to drive, period. Besides I don't see why u went from owning a BMW to an Alfa Romeo if you think that FWD is inferior
Anyway, Alfa is part of Fiat now, and this will mean they might still do 4wd, but will NEVER do a RWD again, get over it.
