Why's my Alfa

I have Koni yellow adjustable dampers up front and KYB "gas-a-just"s at the rear, P/flex + Spherical bush combo at rear, new-ish front arms and new-ish Suplex springs all round.
My car feels what I'd describe as "taut" - but not uncomfortable - with virtually no repeat bouncing around after crossing road imperfections.
Best thing is that the adjustability allows you to get the feeling you prefer at the front, while (in mine anyway..) the rear just seems to follow along quite happily!
The Koni STR.T orange front dampers get some good reviews too, although some here have also found them a little under-damped.
In tight, fast, sweeping corners, I can also understand the benefit of a stiffer anti-roll bar at the rear maybe, but you can certainly live without that day to day!
