Brera 2.2 SV "S"

That's exactly what I've done Ghosty! Bought my 2.2. for 7400, got the 19" rims & acceleras for 1750, and the S silencers bought and fitted for just under 375. That's 9525 for a car that IMHO looks 99% as good as the S and cost a fair few grand less, but with skyview, and the alloy dash which I much prefer to the red stitched leather.

I always get frustrated when people talk about mpg, you know what it is when you buy it, or at least you should...we all buy Breras for their looks not their economy! And equally we forgive the lack of feel and handling because we feel so damn amazing driving such a gorgeous car that you barely ever see on the road. I could buy a 3 series diesel and have much better mpg and handling, but I sure would miss that feeling of driving about in my Brera a whole lot more.

I was gonna say rant over but it kind of feels like a love letter as well!

Brera S

I've done pretty much the same to my 2.4

I call it the Tractor S!

S wheels, lowered on Eibachs, prodrive mudflaps, DPF removed.

I'm still tempted by a real S, or putting it on a petrol car instead...
