Re: Post here if you love your 159 or Brera..
I have no regrets whatsoever about getting a Brera. It always makes me feel good when I get in and press the Start button. The only thing I don't like is seeing another on the road.
Until, that is, I realise how beautiful it looks, and remember that mine looks exactly the same and I'm thankful for the occasional reminder.
I've hardly had any problems with the car and it has never broken down or not started.
It's not the best sports car in the world, but that's not the point. It doesn't have to be. There's so much there that can't be summed up in 'normal' motoring press terms. It's not very practical (small back seats), it's expensive to run etc., etc.
I've had cars that were faster, one that handled better (no shame, it was a Boxster S), ones more refined, but none that inspire so much emotion.
Having kept this car for nearly two years now I have to say that in its own sweet, charming, elegant, seductive, Italian way it is the nicest car I have had the pleasure to own.
