159 1750Tbi ground clearance?

Can anyone tell me the ground clearance of the 159 1750, assuming 17" alloys?

Can't say what it would be with 17" alloys... but with 19"' wheels mine still bottoms out on speed humps (where the wheels pass either side of them).

Having said that, mine is a Ti, with the sports suspension, which may make it lower.

The problem is the plastic engine cover under the car... which is shaped so that bits of it stick out more than others.

They just can't have speed humps in Italy... either that, or they don't bother road testing new cars before deciding to build a load of them... ;-)
