Thought I would share my ownership experience so far after purchasing a Brera 3.2 Q4 recently.
Where to start? Well, one thing I have noticed is the amount of attention she attracts. There aren't too many of them downunder so as I pleasantly discovered, they make for an unusual sight.
Driving through Sydney's central business district yesterday, I was amazed at how many heads turned. One lady literally had her mouth agape at the traffic lights for a good 30 seconds just trying to work out what the hell I was driving.
Prolonged sideways glances from men, boys and girls ensued on my return trip.
My 156 was a great car. The best no doubt I have owned up to this point. But never did it receive this sort of reaction.
From a driving perspective, she loves the bends. Flying through a tight hairpin was illuminating, my brother puzzled at failing to hear the sound of tyres screaming while negotiating corners at speed.
So far, she's everything I could have hoped for. No rocking seat issues. No fuel tank problems. No squeaking power steering.
Just a beautiful V6 burble and a stunning presence.
Fingers crossed she remains that way.
