If I may ask, after some quick tests, I think I get the best results shooting at 200 ASA with +0,7 exposure to feed the shadows, then I tone down the highlights in SPP.

Any advise on this?

Well, not advice but I have done quite a bit of research on the so-called 'highlight recovery' and would say that over-exposing habitually could reward you with un-recoverable highlights in some scenes, for example, white buildings on a bright day. On my Sigmas there's not a lot of headroom, maybe 1/2 EV and they only shoot raw, so I'm not a great fan of ETTR.
