The main reaosn for swapping is for a bit better economy, i currently get 35 ish MPG in the brera (official combined of 41 ish) and the 159 has an official combined figure of 51 ish. So my gues is that id get another 10 MPG with the 159.

I know theres lots of post on here about this but can people let me know what there actually getting in their 159's please?

Also, which model and engines are best? the 2.0 JTDM has the best economy on paper but would like peoples opinions

My personal experience after more than 1 year in both cars:

Brera 2.2 (2008)

seats - more comfortable
looks sexier
no windscreen squeak
feels a bit faster
faster to clean (less doors, no waxable roof)

159 2.2 (sedan) (2007)

suspension - more comfortable
shorter lighter doors - far more practical - less rattles
VDC - not intrusive at all
(for whatever reason) better engine sound
overall driving experience a bit better

If I would have to decide for a new car at the moment, it would be difficult.
159 with Brera seats would be good.
