My New Brera

Picked up this low mileage but horribly scruffy Brera 2.4 a couple of weeks ago.

Didnt want to post anything until I got it back from the paint shop as the black window trims, bumper and bonnet needed fresh paint and the wheels needed a refurb. So here she is:

Cost me 3900 and another 850 at the paint shop. Not bad for a 2.4 Brera with 55k on the clock and also fitted with Bose and Nav and it looks great now too....except for the gash stick on front badge and the faded rear (replacements ordered)

Now I just have to get it down to Angel Tuning, fit a Grom Audio device and get the geo done and she will be just about perfect

Nice Brera make sure to take care of the paintwork (regular washes/waxing etc). Alfa red can wear easily but with care and attention it looks great! Best colour in my opinion

Yeah I think the wheels and the brakes really set it off.

I was too embarrassed to post picture of it though until it had been to the paint shop. The front was the most stone chipped I had ever seen and the wheels and window trims were all peeled and scabby.

Thanks. I'm very pleased with how the wheels and brakes came out. Apparently they even mixed up the high temp paint for the calipers to match the body colour rather than just using stock caliper paint. Sets the car of brilliantly
