Re: New Prodrive Brera S
I thought I'd add my 2p, owning an 07 3.2 Breara and having owned an Imprezza, before and after official Prodrive mods.
The one thing I think the 3.2 wants, is more grunt, particularly torque lower down the rev range. So I'm really disappointed to see the Brera S is 'just' handling mods.
The prodrive mods to the imprezza where entirely performance based, a re-map, de-cat, new exhaust, and intercooler hose. It transformed the car.
TBH, the thing that really clinched me buying the Brera over the competition was the 4WD system. For the Brera S to drop the 4WD to save weight is basically due to the failure of the supercharger option.
Let's not mince words, this is Alfa/Prodrive trying to polish the turd. A whole year development and no increase in power, so you end up with a 250bhp FWD compromise, with 19" wheels and a bone shaking ride to make it feel your going faster.
in a word, Yuk!
