OK folks, the order for the Brera is going to be placed on Thursday
. Despite getting a huge insurance quote I am still going ahead. The problem is that when it arrives, it's most probably going to be the only Brera in the UAE and probably the Gulf region. The insurance company didn't even have it in their database so I had to provide the specs for them (including translating Brera into Arabic!).
The only thing I'm still unsure about, is whether to go manual or automatic with Qtronic. Nearly all cars here are automatic. My wife would only drive it if it were an auto (rare occasions though). If I were ever to sell it on, many people would rule it out if it were manual.
Added to this, reading through the forums, a few of you manual Brera owners have had clutch issues that would take much longer to resolve if they were to occur here.
All other issues are resolved. This week, I went around to see the other cars I'd been considering for a last look to make sure and that didn't take long.
I hope some of you can answer on the auto/manual issue.
Right now I'm off to play golf so I'll be back much later.....talking of which.....can I fit a golf bag in the boot without taking the driver/woods out?? Not that this would swing anything...just a thought.
