Re: Brera S Queries and Advice
Mine's a 2007 and it has been rock solid on build quality and reliability (I had a duff bosch sensor replaced early on, that's it). There are no squeaks and rattles, everything works perfectly and the ride is great - though mine is not an S, the S will be a harder ride.
Colour - the black does look great, but if you get it, get the dealer to put the Smartguard on but get it cheap - don't pay £400, it's worth maybe £100-£200 tops! The smartguard is much better than that superguard stuff I had, my wife's Black Spider with the Smartguard stays cleaner longer and is easy to clean.
Tyres - get your local tyre place to check the toes are set to parralel (i.e. no toeing at all) and it won't eat front tyres. I'm looking likely to get 15-20,000 miles out of the fronts and 25-30,000 miles out of the rears. Again though, mine's an SV not an S, so it's possible my tyre wear may be a bit less than yours but not much I imagine.
