2.4 159 q4 or not q4?

firstly hi,

new on the forum - big fan of anything italian - been away from italian stuff for a bit with an ozzy hsv rwd fun - but thinking of coming back with a 159

so q4 - worth the extra? i see the ti's are FWD?

any thoughts?

used to have a 'grale evo1 with similar power split to rear but found it not that big a rear driver.

is the 2.4 too much for just the fronts however?

Only driven the Q4 Brera whilst following a FWD Brera 2.4JTDm. The Q4 felt planted and I did notice that the FWD seemed to squirm a bit under hard braking and the Q4 didn't at all. Don't know about the 159 though.

No. The car has stacks of grip in most conditions, although I suspect the Q4 will have an advantage in the wet. But after 7,000 miles I haven't felt the need for 4WD.

EDIT: Welome to the forum BTW
