I usually let Monza Sport do anything to the Brera, so I have the stamp in the book, but decided to change the engine and gearbox oil myself. This was because it was an interim engine oils change (at 10K) and I wanted to use Fuchs oil as recommended by Auto Lusso. I got the oils and a filter from Opie oils at a good price. The engine had the 5/40 Titan GTI and 75/80 Titan Sintofluid in the gear box.
Now, with new pads front and rear, a new set of GY F1's and the engine and gearbox oils changed the car is quieter, stops better, changes gear more smoothly and the engine sounds better.
I will change the Spiders gearbox oil over to the Fuchs Titan Sintofuid soon as I can, its a worth while change and will ,I hope, help preserve the M32.
One moan though, after one of the under tray screws broke off, and not the first it seems, why the hell dont the pro mechanics put some copper neverseaze on them from day one? There must be 4 on my car broken off, a liitle neverseaze would have saved that happening.
Someone said to me, "so whats so special about an Alfa Romeo then?" I told him, "If you have to ask, you wont understand".
Driving Brera S 2.2, wife drives 939 Spider 2.2, plus now a 147 1.6 TS whilst the Spider hibernates and there is a 1972 Spider 2000 S2 in the garage for fun days.
