Well as it seems it won't be long before I'll have to change springs and shocks in my 147. The car has toora 7,5x17 wheels with 215 45 17 tyres. I think that ti has a different setup than the normal 147, and my cousin's 156 has the sportpack suspension which is very nice in 156 but I don't know if it will be equally nice in 147. I don't know about other aftermarket combinations, because if you haven't driven a car you never know. I don't want the car to be very "stiff" because although the highways in my country are perfect (they are all brand new nowadays) the roads in towns are more like anti-tank obstacles than roads. There are also many vertical to the road shallow ditches (about 2 inches deep to 2 inches wide) which I call "suspension killers". So I can't sacrifice comfort or lower the car more than half an inch. Do you have any suggestions or has anyone tried the two alfa combinations I mention?

ive had both a 147 lusso and a ti with sport pack
really didnt notice it stiffer but to be fair thay had done 60k when i got it
does seem to handle better tho think its 25mm lower with the sport pack.
