Re: Tempted away from a Beemer...
When comparing the 2.2 against the 2.4 diesel don't forget to factor in the resale value. The diesel will be a much better re-sale proposition (even if only by perception) than the petrol.
I think the 2.4 Brera diesel is a reasonable alternative to the big Beemer 6. Bth were designed as continent crossing cruisers. The Brera looks far more expensive than it is and it has exlusivity over the more common 6.
Cheaper initial cost should swing it, too.
It's a pity the 2.4 Alfa engine is only a 5 pot instead of the techno marvel the BMW sixes are.
