Well, you raise a good question. Personally, having tried them in the metal, I strongly prefer the Brera - the design is somehow more 'together' as I guess you'd expect (also, rather superficially, the Giugiaro badge is somehow more exclusive than the Farina one).
Also, having had a test drive and fallen in love with the Brera, it has the advantage of being available now-ish rather than having to wait until next year.
However, my wife really really wants a convertible and having seen the Spider at the motor show she's kinda hooked on that. Which wouldn't be so bad ;-)
Right now, we're weighing things up and talking to dealers about prices, finance and such - and whether we can afford a second car, which is really the plan. We have an ageing x-type 2.5 which probably should be replaced sooner rather than later. In an ideal world, I'd replace it with a Brera right now and get a Spider as the second car - that'd look pretty good on the driveway, and quite cool I think, but I'm not sure the budget will stretch that far!
So - chapter and verse, but you did ask!!!
