well good evening everyone.
well i have chosen to join, despite not currently owning an Alfa, however i do plan to change this as soon as possible, and thats part of the reason for joining, as some advice would be much appreciated.
when i return from my travels in late spring next year i shall be requiring a more family freindly vehicle than the rubbish van i currently use to ferry myself about. I have been planning and building a tweaked 306 gti6 - very sorry to all that i have dared to mention this however...due to expecting our 2nd and needing a better car this little project is shelved.
Now afew years ago i drooled over the Brera like a horny schoolboy looking at page 3, and still would love 1, and my project despite being a poor second, was planned using Brera Q4 running gear.
Now i am looking more at a 159 Q4, so if any of you lovely people have 1, and have some useful advice on its day to day running, performance, practicality and enjoyability to drive, as i have read some reports and road tests saying that the v6 power plant isn't the greatest, and its not as sporty as it would lead you to beleive.
Also again if anyone has 1 and has done any tweaking to improve performance, handling etc i would love to hear about it.
the only bad thing i can see at the moment is the massive road tax bracket it sits in. but is it worth it folks???
cheers for any and all advice
