365 days of Alfa ownership

365 days ago I picked up my 2010 Brera 3.2 V6 Q4 and off I went on what has probably been the best twelve months of motoring fun I have had.

Have never photographed a car so much.

It makes me smile. Love the burble of the exhaust.

Did some TLC and fettling as you do... new alloys, Prodrive exhausts, some bling (fancy gearknob and alloy pedals), front wheel lower arch repaint and stonechip protection plus Prodrive mudflaps to stop it happening again.

Last but not least new shocks and springs. Went for the Eibach Prokit springs and Bilstein B6 shocks which really sorted things out.

Will probably fit Powerflex bushes come the spring too.

My previous car was an RX8 which I really really liked but the Alfa has something special. Never fails to deliver an enjoyable drive and you always look back once parked up..

This forum has been a great help in finding out all the little foibles and tricks of Alfa ownership - thanks to everyone who posts here.

So, 8000 odd trouble free miles so far. Here’s to many more.
