BTW, what ever happened to the OP He's not been online for ages and ages. Odd, esp considering he contributed quite a bit to AO.

However..... every time I see a Brera on the street I want one. I sat for 10 minutes in my 156 behind a bright red Brera parked in Tesco's car park on Saturday waiting for the wife, and they just look so nice.

Anyone using a Brera for "practical family life"? (It won't be the main family motor... that's the wife's CRV for 90% of the time) but it needs to be eminnently usable for the 3 of us plus buggy and bags to use at weekends.
My 18 month old nephew has had quite a few journeys in our Brera and although the front pasenger seat has to be moved forward a bit, him and his rather bulky car seat do just about fit- although he might be struggling with headroom in another 12 months !

As for the buggy 'n bags the boot swallows the lot quite easily, but it can be a bit tricky to lift out with the high boot opening.

Personally I'd go for it - it's worth the minor hassle of not having 4 doors just to enjoy the instant fame that goes with ownership
-everyone stares at you !
