Alfa Brera S

Yes S(teve)Gould my Brera is Black also and I'm Loving it!!! Did you get yours from Western in Perth, think about the same time as I did???

Well the "they all do that sir" theory seems to be answer to my problems. Will just need to save up for new front tyres every 6 months

Have just put 18s on my 159 and noticed this on the past two mornings. It is as though the girth of the tyre struggles to be pushed/dragged along the tarmac at low speeds.
I heard it this morning, cold road, newly covered tarmac road. Doesn't happen when the car or road is warmer, so I put it down to the change from 215 to 235 tyres.
Mind you, I will be putting new tyres on the front at the weekend, so will see if this changes the situation at all.

Could this be the reason my Brera S popped its power steering belt twice in 4000 miles Both times it happened I was moving off from stationary.
