Does anyone know this for definite, or is it just another made up forum fact which will become gospel truth?
Lets put it this way, when I was looking for a Brera last year I went to my local dealer and test drove a silver Brera 2.2. When I got home I went through my magazines and on the front cover of Autocar was a picture and roadtest of the same car.
Still researching the Brera I went on youtube looking for reviews, I found the top gear video of the Stig thrashing the very same car around the test track. FACT
No two ways about it this car would have been thrashed by Autocar and the Stig, have you ever seen what they do to set the 0-62 times.
When I went on the Cloverleaf track day a couple of weeks ago Alfa had 20+ cars available to drive, most with very low mileage.
Do you really think Alfa will push these cars through the auctions?
Do you think they will flog them as low mileage ex Alfa management / demonstrators?
We already know from other posters that rejected have ended up back for sale on dealer forecourts, and if Alfa are prepared to flog the Topgear car through a main dealer then Cloverleaf cars won't be a problem for them.
Thats my conclusion, I leave you to form your own conclusions.
Lets be sensible here, there is no way on this earth that a car should need new brake discs after only 13,500miles.
I'm an engineer by trade and I don't buy into this 'bad batch' don't see anyone else posting about early repacement of brake discs and some members have already done large mileages.
