AR should prevent this happening or drop the list prices. Yet the list prices of the 159 are rumoured to be highr than a 156, it's just crap business if you ask me.
They should drop the list prices. End of story. It has masses of benefits - not least opening up the large market of potential buyers who don't realise the savings on offer, and making mag reviews more favourable as Alfa's higher-end models get tested against the lower-end but similarly priced Germans! Plus depreciation figures look better as second hand prices are compared to list prices not actual "street prices".
I paid the same for my GTA as I would have done for a BMW316iSE Touring with less kit on it...
