fix it till it's

A nice condition GT 3.2 might be something you should consider too. Lighter - more nimble car.
I drove a 2.4 Brera and was dissapointed to horizon and back, it drove nice on it's own. Felt verry solid on the road. But it was slow - and i mean dead in the water slow, i wasn't even surprised because the 159 i drove before had the same problem. Both were 2.4s both were dead in the water (and drunk fuel like crazy) - that day i blamed it on the weight and on the aerodynamics (a Passat 2.0 TDI could outrun both).
However i think that the problem (as both were used) was more into the engine departement (the 5 Zylinder Diesel tend to soot up and decrease performance a lot if not taken care). Those engines are durable, but they suffer extremely from EGR problems (can be fixed, but on most used cars it simply is not fixed), alsow they might had to regenerate the DPF.... You shold keep that in mind. I lose quite a lot of torgue if DPF regeneration us due on my car now, so combine both worst case problems and the 210bhp engine might only deliver 350nm and 170bhp... (sooted EGR, sootet Boost sensor, and need a long drive to clean up DPF).
Sadly most users tend to scratch the aluminium interior with there keys and other stuff, that can seriously look like **** on a used car (idiots).
