Brera buying opinions sought
I hadn't been driving my Abarth for a while and jumped into it the weekend. As much fun as it is, I've decided to part with it as it's such a mad terrier of a car, it's not much fun when driving at 7 tenths. I must have suddenly aged.
So, as my alfetta is also going, it seems logical to buy another alfa, and the only ones that float my boat are V6 GTVs and spider, and petrol (JTS) Breras, so whatever it is, it'll be one of those.
Brera wise, knowing how much to spend is tricky, I could go to 11 or so, which buys me a really good trade 2.2 S (privately it seems 9-10), but there's such a lot of nice 3.2 Q4s around the 7K mar, plus plenty of nice 2.2 SVs. A 3.2 S appears to be outside my range and I'm not a fan of the TBI engine, so let's ignore those. I don;t do many miles so MPG not an issue, and being as I'm replacing multiple cars with this next one, neither does tax.
So, I'm after some opinions that will at least help me narrow down what I look at. I've only driven 2.2s (S and and SV which I owned for a year or so) and loved that engine once it was remapped and had the non std air filter. But I don't want to ignore the V6s as I suspect I'm missing out on something.
Has anyone driven the lot?
