I dont want to convolute this thread with that ignorant cuss.. but I can assure you the words "then get a Brera" have never come out of the RussianM3's (or whatever he calls himself on this forum) mouth.. Nor is his antics that of someone who is just rude, and, oh we can't deal with it. He's been on a proactive campaign for awhile to bash modern Alfa's. Has been caught up in more lies then Pres. Bush, and like the former has never admitted to them. There's the difference.
I'll also pose the question.. Why is he not actively posting "his assertions" on this forum?
I'll give you some random highlights...He once "cried all the way home from the dealership" after test driving the Brera 3.2. His words, not mine.. He constantly calls the Brera and 159 ugly, and says many Europeans agree with him..(despite the numerous awards both cars have won for design) cough.. He quotes from Top Gear Magazine for the Brera Spider, when it suits his agenda, but when it came to the Brera, TT, RX8 roundup on the Top Gear program, they're entertainment only and not credible, only to find he had indeed used the same TV review to pad his agenda in an older thread.!! haha (hoping the primarily US based forum wouldn't have actually seen the show of course.) He constantly refers to Alfa Enthusiasts as the "AlfaTaliban", which is inexcusable, no matter where you're from, US or the UK. Stated on the BB that Alfa had not addressed the heavy issues for future models, which was a flat out lie, unfortunately he was an active poster of a thread which dealt with that very subject on italiaspeed, which proved not only did he lie, but he knew about it. oops. hah
And just some direct quotes from the BB of the RussianM3...
"According to surveys, BMW drivers score the most, since they don't have to spend time in their garages elbow deep in grease fixing their car..."
"I guess awards are only "important" if Alfa recieves them."
"I really liked
Alfa Romeo, the problem is that if you are not shallow ;-) and value substance over style, bimmers are still ahead."
"Young guys on the street actually turn their heads to see where the noise is coming from. I guess alfa v6 lives on in the new BM I-6."
"They might be better in one aspect, but BMW will be better in everything else."
"But I always come back to BMW? Why? They are just soo good."
"Passion, beauty, taste, cuore sportivo all labels that can be attched to a skoda as long as it has the snake badge."
"I found Alfa drivers (except fot nerdy old Alfa lovers) are basically BMW drivers with an inferiority complex."
"Well, Alfa is also xeroxing the designs. Brera is basically a hatchback 159."
"Brera is caca."
I won't speak of him again. Again, I was just bringing him to your attention, you can choose to deal with him or not.. I would just pay close attention to someone with 1 or 2 posts who says their engine just dropped out of their brand new Brera...
