Brera 3.2V6 Q4 - buyer advice required

Hi, I am looking to purchase a 3.2V6 Q4 Brera manual, it's an '06 model with under 70k miles on it. FARSH etc.

Having owned several Alfa's in the past, (145, GT, 916 Spider) I am slightly familiar with the brand. However, I have never owned a V6 Alfa and as such am ignorant about a few things. I hope that you all can help me.

1. Does it have cam belts or cam chains? What is the recommended (real world) change interval on these and what is the cost?

2. Real World MPG - any chance of getting it over 30mpg on a long run?

3. Tracking, camber issues

4. Electrical gremlins.


I have looked through the buyers guide, but it's quite a long thread and is not Brera Specific.

SV JTS 24V V6 Q4

This is only my view & just forum advice. Forum advice & all promblems can be different with any brand of car.

1st, They have a timing chain, changing oil say every 8-10k should make the chain last the life of the engine.

2nd, MGP over 30 if your doing 40mph in the inside lane C-Control on in 5th & annoying eveyone, yes it's achievable.

3rd, yes they can have camber issues but powerflex bush's can fix that.

4th, Electric Gremlins i'd say not in my view, mines 8 years old in feb 2015 & everthing still works, & nothing has fell of Nor does it rattle inside either
