Re: Got my 159 today

Yep agree with all of what you say - I think you can get away with slightly more than 200 bhp (I've had a Cooper S Works with 210 and that was fine). I agree that Tiff usually has no bearing on reality. Published reviews (e.g. newspapers, Evo, Autocar - well I know some don't agree with Autocar) are usually more objective and more useful - and don't talk about drifting RWD!

Never been a fan of 4WD (except in a 911 turbo) mainly because my experience was in Audis - where normal condition (i.e. not wet) handling was everage at best and steering feel is non-existent. Looking forward to driving a Brera Q4 to see how Alfa have done.
