After everything that happened, and the work I put in, I gave up on the Brera while I got on with real work, and it was inconveniently left at somewhere, which made it even more difficult to negotiate a recovery!
Finally, I have had the car recovered to my workshop. My neighbours who run a general mechanic garage have plugged it in to their software, and established that the crank sensor is faulty, and replacing it will fix the problem.
So, it may be resolved imminently.
Am I going to keep the car? I really don't know. But it is a beautiful black 07 Brera SV, red leather interior, Bose, heated seats. I really want to keep it, but can I trust it?
