Should I buy a Brera or GT, or non-Alfa?
Hi guys, have jumped over from the 916 forum as I have sold my Spider and now want a bigger, more modern car.
My situation is as follows:
I drive approx 9000 miles per year (may increase), I have owned Alfas previously (145 Cloverleaf, GT Blackline 1.8TS and 916 Spider 2.0TS) and I am now torn between sticking with the marque or going for something different like a Saab 9-3 Sportwagon, or BMW 5 series Sport.
I am looking to spend around £6K - £8K.
So, leaving aside the Saab (last to chance to see) and the BMW (an 'easy' car), which is it to be?
I like the Blackline GT very much, but don't find 1.8TS 'exciting' to drive.
The Brera, I like the front, but the back end does little for me. But is it a more fun car to drive?
Help me out Alfisti, which should I go for, the 2.0 GT or 2.2 JTS Brera?
