Brera Prodrive further advice for buyer?

Hi everyone -

I first posted on AO way back in 2009 when looking for a 147 and got some excellent advice.

It's time to move on though, so I'm back where I began 6 years ago

I'm having a look at a local car, a 3.2 Brera Prodrive.
I've had a look at (Definitive 159/ Brera Buyers Guide) which is excellent, but I'm looking for specific buyer's advice for the 3.2, hopefully from some 3.2 prodrive owners - the good and the bad experiences owning the car - and what I really need to look at when I go to see it.

Could I get some rough prices on the big service items and intervals? The chain worries me for example.

Are there service / workshop manuals available for the car online or otherwise?

It's good to be back.

Brera 2.2 JTS

I have heard that the timing chain replacement is over 2 grand against the 700 or so on the 2.2. I don't think the 3.2 has had quite as many problems as the 2.2 chain though. Even so, I would love a 3.2 prodrive if I could afford it and the ongoing costs.
