Seems prices of a 159 / Brera vary to what part of the UK you are in.
A few years back the price difference on a Petrol 159 vs a Diesel 159 with average mileage was quite significant. Today that gulf in prices does not seem to be there.
I am at a loss of what some specialists and dealers are selling Alfa's for ( Esp that independent in London that begins with a V ), where some sellers are very competitive and probably more interested in selling there stock.
The price difference in Glasses Guide for minimum retail vs private/px values is mean. Hence private sellers need to sell at 25-30% less than at retail at a dealer.
I would never trust the values at Parkers, its just a retail index, if anything just hot air!
I think prices will remain fairly firm, if competitive till the replacement model has been around for at least a year.
Prices here in Scotland are lower than England, that's for sure, just do a like for like search on Autotrader / piston heads / motors.co.uk
Lots of Mito's and Guiletta's around the mo, with plenty of 159's about, but not seen a Brera in 6 months.
Think the image of AR has improved in recent years and under the Fiat Group, the Fiat models have really helped the AR marque, for example the 500 is everywhere and holds its value very well.
