Re: The Brera S - I learnt a lot!
I have just picked up my Brera S last monday - until I found this thread I was wondering what the hell the glass roof was for with a solid headliner! I'd be surprised if the glass was more rigid, its on a floating rubber seal (and glass is not good torsionally) so i'd guess it was the frame around it that's stiffer if the dealer has actually been informed that..
Have to say, the car is fantastic to drive - the prodrive designed tweaks really make a difference, the car's better to drive than my old GT (which the std was no where near in my opinion)... yes they have saved money here and there but it drives well and the black looks like a stealth fighter with the wheels....
Only really frustrating thing about the money saving is the lack of blue&me (or nav) - the dealer could not understand why, and I certainly can't.. I have to now spend £250 on the magic blauplunkt lead to get some of the functionality (and more on a tomtom) why ARUK, why?!?
