Re: Brera 3.2 or 2.4
Contratulations Dougie hope you enjoy the new car.
Having moved to a 159 2.4 from a GTA, I will admit that it has taken me a wee while to get used to the diesel engine. I love the fact that I only fill up once a week, I like seeing the 38 to 40 mpg figures I get on my trip to work, but in truth diesel engines are not things that you can love in the same way as those Alfa V6's.
If it had been me, I think I would have gone for the 2.2 as a good compromise between the 3.2 and the diesel, though I'm not sure what your daily milage is.
Was sorry to hear that Jonathon had to sell on my GTA as I know it would have been well looked after.Is the new owner a forum member >
Ps hope you checked the V5 to make sure of the history of the car ! (see my previous thread on here)!
