Might sell my 'Tractor S' Brera
The call of a Brera S is severely tempting me at the moment, so I might sell my current Brera (2006 2.4 Diesel) which I call my 'tractor' S due to the mods listed below.
Of course this is silly after spending so much getting it just right (eg I just fitted a brand new aluminium dash for it as the scratches from the original owner annoyed me!). But then car buying is a bit silly...
-Rare-ish Diamanté grey colour
-Dark grey 19" S alloys in perfect condition (and plenty of tread on the P-Zeros)
-DPF removed/EGR turned off/remapped (so more power, better power delivery, better fuel economy and less to go wrong)
-Lowered on Eibach springs (looks and handles better)
-Red brake callipers
-Prodive mud flaps
-Tracking setup done by Peter Cambridge of prodrive Brera S fame (better handling and less tyre wear)
-Cambelt and water bottle changed at last major service (saving a lot of money for potential buyers)
-76k miles, but it's a diesel so does it matter that much?
-Few minor scuffs and stonechips
Car will have it's MOT next week and will pass that before any sale, should I decide to sell.
The extras would cost thousands to do to any used Brera, so I hope to get about £10k for the car.
