Maybe it comes and goes along with

Brera 3.2

Re: Brera - good idea ?

3.2 is thirsty, and very on short runs. The S is supposed to be very good, but haven't driven one so can't really comment. But it's slower to 60 and somehow I find it hard to believe that FWD will grip and handle better than 4x4. And I like the SV glass roof.

Brera 3.2 Q4 SV

Re: Brera - good idea ?

As stated by everyone else, yep the 3.2 does drink it down a bit sharpish (don't expect much more than 20-23 mpg over a tank) but it sounds brilliant and seems to match the power requirements for the car perfectly. Never bought the car expecting frugal environmentally friendly fuel consumption, so not been let down

Only had the wobbly seat issue so far, but after sitting in the new style seats I can say they are quite a bit more comfortable and more supportive so an ex demo later version may be a good buy.

If it was anywhere near N Wales I thought slow was the only speed you were allowed to go (unless you're a Chief Constable that is).
