I bet you can't wait!!!!! I can't wait to see the pictures!!!
I have never driven a Mondial so I can't make a direct comparison.
I guess it depends on what they are calling slow speed handling. Are they talking about general driving around town or stuff like parallel parking? General driving around town I have no problem with the 308. For parking lot manuevers, it is not like a Cadillac where you stick a finger in the steering wheel spokes and give it a spin, you do need to use both hands. And the car should be rolling; it is very difficult to turn the wheel when the car is at a dead stop. The only thing that would cure that would be power steering, not tires. Although a narrower tire would help with parallel parking, it would affect the high speed handling. I do not know if the Mondial has power steering.
