Hi, I thought I'd throw in my opinion. I had a 2.2 with Mangoletsi's mod4 (no hesitation, a little more power)and it was a super car. The engine is lovely and smooth and sounds great with the mod. The 3.2 is quicker but not hugely so, it's not like going from a 2.0TS GTV to a 3.0 V6 one. I had a fabulous 250HP GTV v6 before my Brera hand and I had a 260HP 147 GTA just after. To be honest, I probably preferred the 2.2 Brera, possbibly because it was so pretty, but it's also a comfy modern cruiser for those days when you just want to get there and still lot of fun if you want to hoon around. If it's down to costs, on your mileage, assuming 22, 28, 32, 38 MPG for 3.2, 2.2, TBI, 2.4D you'll be looking at approx £4.3K,£3.6K,£3K,£2.6K per year. Cheers, Paul.
