Re: GT or Brera
This is a question which is relevant to me as well. I'm a very happy Brera owner at the moment, but in just under a year, the lease deal runs out & I'll also need more rear legroom for the kids. This means I'm looking at the GT as the likely replacement. Possibly a 159sw 2.4, but money being a bit tight, the GT looks superb vfm on the 2nd hand market. eg Blacklines for under £15k, & 3.2's for £10-12k. Thats a whole load of car for the money, I think.
OK, so the build quality is of the previous generation, but there doesn't seem to be many reports of bad unreliability, just occasional rattles, etc. I even like the interior of the GT, but maybe if I had already owned a 147/156, the step up to the Brera interior would be appreciated.
I would think that coming from a 156, the Brera will feel better built, more solid & more heavy, which could be a good or a bad thing, depending on your point of view.
A re-mapped Blackline vs a 2.4 Brera for a similar price would make an intruiging side-by-side comparison, I'd think.
