Dropped the GT off for its 36k service this morning expecting a Brera loan car as promised, but got a 159 someone had already broken th Brera -drivers door wont open.
Anyway had a Diesel 159 Lusso for the day, I have to say I was really impressed.
Build quality felt totally different to the GT - actually felt "German" if you know what I mean
Ride - again very good, more stable, sturdy, solid, safer? than the GT.
Performance - WOW !!! that Torque is amazing, I would say it is faster that my GT accelerating
Downside - burgundy with tan interior (the interior was ok)
Would I buy one - maybe!
anyway back to the service, all on time and reasonable £392.91 + VAT
Oil filter 5.96
Sealing gasket 2.31
Air filter (2) 22.76
Screen wash 2.25
Oil 5lt 44.75 - not impressed its castrol 10/w40 - i forgot to ask for Selina 10/w60 but thats what the manual recommends??
brake fluid 4.23
brake cleaner 3.75
A/c compressor "Tight" - on order - warranty it will be a recon (had one last year under warrenty as well)
Front & Rear Pads - worn need replacing - on order none stocked
Rear Bushes ?? - worn need replacing - on order none stocked - apparently these used to be a warranty item but not any more only £7 each though
All tyres on the limit - i knew this anyway.
bit disappointed about the parts issue - they only stock a limited number of parts?
on the plus side - I attended the Brera Launch in Leicestershire and entered a competition and won!!
Weekend away for Two in the Cotswolds and wait for it.......................................a Brera for the duration of the weekend
