This is my Hello post so hello!!
Dropped onto this website last year, around August but never felt the need to post a message.
I drive an Alfa 156 (1.8TS) Sportwagon 02 model. Bought it as a run around for work (bit smaller and more economical than my VW) and must say that I love the car. The sleek looks aside, you do get a lot of car for your money with alfa, the leather interior is finished to a high standard and I love the feel and sound of the car when it's thrashed (foot down hard).
If I have any complaints, probably just 2 that I can think of? There are a couple of blisters that have appeared on the bodywork... wouldn't have expected this on a car that isn't too old. The other issue is an intermittent problem with the fan, it sometimes switches itself on first thing in a morning at start-up and you need to turn the engine off again and re-start to get the thing off!!
For the price that I payed for the car, I can live with this.
Think I'm now an Alfa convert and will probably end up getting an Alfa 159 at some point soon... although I do love the look of the Brera
