Yes it's got a lot of mods and 2 ecus one std and one with Autodelta remap, runs very well and has never let me down but I need to get something that less road tax and better mpg the wife is not happy I'm selling. But if I don't get any interest at what I think is a good price for such a well maintained car I'll keep it . its up for 6250 or near offer
Still have the TS spider so won't be Alfa less.

Autodelta -Jano tweaked remap, Free flow intake, 100cell sports CAT, hand made free flow SS rear boxes + grooved + drilled front & rear disks and DS2500s

I seen the ad lastnight on autotrader & though for how long you've owned it & the money spent it was a very good price, should sell very quick. I would of asked for more myself it's not your averaged owned Brera even with 80k.
I also noticed the blue spider on the drive

Had a few hundred views but no bites yet, can't say I'd be massively disappointed if it didn't sell

We will see

I bet most of the views are due to your post on here! I certainly went hunting on autotrader once you posted. Lovely looking car and obviously well cared for.

Keep it. On an up-note petrol will be less than 1.00 per liter by the end of the month & you can pay for your tax now on the never, never , with i think only 5% interest.

You'll be gutted come summer that someone's driving your baby around if it goes

Kerbed one of my wheels today after I tried to get round someone who'd stuck there nose out on a junction.
Not long been refurbed either- will see if I can sand it back a bit and hide it.

Bought two more Pilot Super Sports for the front (and moved the 4 month old PSSes to the rear) and then went for a hoon up Cheddar gorge and across the mendips - incredible grip even in damp conditions.

Looks like I a brake pad upgrade will be coming soon!

Had a scratch polished out which the misses had added with the corner of her fiesta. Then she wonders why i wont let her drive my cars?!?! The polisher did an amazing job and is hardly noticeable to the naked eye. The fiesta came off worse with great chunks of paint coming off.

I am lucky because my wife is a very good driver. The 159 is her car and during school term time covers over 60 km per day. The GT is mine and we let each other drive our cars. Our 22 year old son is also an excellent driver and is allowed to drive the 159 from time to time.

Brera 2.2 SV "S"

Got a new lower arm yesterday (worn bush) and a 4 wheel alignment. Washed and waxed her today.

Only a power steering fluid flush and 2 new handbrake cables to go and I'll be niggle free! Then I can think about that Autodelta remap.

Fitted 4 new tires as the previous owner had mixed brands and sizes on.
Also took apart the driver's side window control and cleaned it up inside as it was acting up.
All in all it's good to take things of the To Do list !!!

Have we got to guess the tyres by the tread pattern or are you going to tell us?

Spend two hours trying to remove the nearside wiper blade. Bought some cheapos last year which had rusted itself on the wiper arm. A hack saw and a pair of pliers sorted it eventually...

Now got some Michelin Stealths on, they clear the screen like a dream! Never had it so good!

Also washed, hoovered and put in a new boot carpet, looking smart again
