Brand Newbie - Alfa Brera wannabe
as you can see by the title of the thread, I'm seriously considering the most exciting, probably least sensible purchase of my car buying life!
I have previously owned a red P reg 145 and a pale blue S reg 156. Both were bought on looks alone. They weren't that bad to drive and own aswell.
For the past year I have considered buying a Brera. No amount of Which review or consumer satisfaction survey could put me off. However, I was looking for what we all strive to find....a bargain!
This would be my last chance to own a true sports coupe for a number of years - my youngest ar 7 and 8. And by the time they were old enough not to want to come in the car with Dad, I'd probably be too old to sling myself in.
Unfrotunately my dithering backfired on me. The family wore me down about getting a dog. And so poor, rescue mutt Diesel, part Boxer, part something else arrived and blew my Brera out of the water.
The time had come to think of something more sensible, more practical. And thats how I've ended up with VW Toerag. And boy do I hate it. Not only that but I have to lift his highness into the boot!
So I've been thinking to myself, I might as well lift him into the boot of a Brera.
glad to be on board, hope I can get some good advice
