i'm certainly not going to slag the car because it did no wrong but a mixture of circumstances raised the final curtain .
!)Whilst the car had no smoke,squeeks,rattles,knocks or faults & the cabin was a fantastic place to sit i always felt there was a "fragility" to it that if pushed could be easily exposed ?
2) my son recently went away for 2 weeks & his car being in front of the garage was easier to take .
A MK5 Golf GTi that cost £1500 less , has covered 30k more yet once on the road felt like i could fill it with fuel & head to the Med with supreme confidence i would get there
3) The Brera is a car i have considered many times in the last 5 years but prices always put me off .
In the meantime i had many performance cars (all german) & i just think the drop in BHP to 185 was too much after having 250 flat 6 / 300 flat 6 /345 V8 /265 straight6 /250 V6
I have tried it & have no regret's but doubt i would buy another & that could well be my loss but as individual's we have to do what feel's right .
46 yrs old now & looking back brings 2 cars to mind that i would gladly buy back & 1 i wouldn't although i consider it THE best all rounder i am likely to own . A 645Ci on a 55 plate that was just way way too problematic but did everything you could ever want .
