I wanted to know something about the ace appliance, do I loose any features if I choose to use the ACE in bridge mode (like nat,tcp reuse , ssl authenticator and termination and such...) ?

No you do not lose any feature in bridge mode.

However, you can't source nat traffic that is bridged.

Only routed or loadbalanced traffic can be source nated.
