10 year old Brera service questions

Hi Guys

Thanks in advance for your help on this one.

I have just bought a Brera and its nearly 10 years old and has only covered 27,000m

I have all the service invoices and mot tests.

I was looking through the service receoits last night all the invoices are from an Alfa main dealer and only include the usual service items like oil and filters, there's one service when all the spark plugs were also replaced.

Are there any things that should have been changed?

Ie im reading on here about timing chains, bushes etc?

Ian

No it sounds OK to me.
Timing chains and bushes are not service items they are only changed if they fail.

Very low mileage for a 10 year old is it a 56 or a 07 plate and was it serviced every year or every two years.

Just drive it and enjoy it, you'll spend the most money on fuel and road tax throughout your ownership speaking from personal experience, but that's not an issue or we would have bought the 2.4 instead. Is yours the grey supercharged model from veloces?

You didn't mention your engine size I'm just stabbing in the dark? Haha!

If they haven't been done already I'd change the coolant, brake and clutch fluids as these are time as well as mileage limited.

You've done well to find one with such low miles. Make sure you use it regularly now as it will thank you for it!

Well the roadtax is one thing out of our control, my wife only probably will only drive 5k per year max so should be good.

its a 3.2
