Hello Everybody!

Hi all, another newbie, I ordered my Brera yesterday and I think I'm just entering the longest 3 months of my life.

Hope it's worth the wait.

Anybody else out there ordered, interested to share opinions on spec and extras.

Re: Hello Everybody!

Hello there. Welcome to AO
Which spec Brera have you ordered - did you get to test drive one and what did you think about it? Looking forward to seeing some pics when she arrives.

In the meantime - I'm dying to know - is your name really Miguel McTyson? It's very unusual - or is it just your forum pseudonym?

Argh...another person to despise because I'm jealous ...welcome aboard, hope you enjoy the Brera.

Be interesting to see how it compares with what you're driving now...

Again thanks for the welcome, I've ordered a 3.2 Q4 SV spec in Alfa Red with 18" 7 Hole wheels and the new bluetooth thing.

I didn't take a test drive, didn't want to miss one of the first build slots so made a snap decision to go ahead this weekend, read a few reviews and took a chance, I have agreed with the dealer if I really hate it when I do get to drive one that I can pull out, but I don't think it's likely.

I just fell in love with it, my first car was a fiat 127GT no less and I used to run a Lancia Beta Spider so this is the next step to Ferrari

I know it's dull but the pseudonym is football related.

Re: Hello Everybody!

Sounds very nice, and one of your seats cost more than my 146 but an Alfa is a Alfa, I should go to bed now as I'am almost drunk

And welcome

Cheers Wilko,
In all seriousness if a a few BM and Audi owners are open minded and take a look at the Brera & 159 you might see a few more of us, in my case though it's the final victory of style over speed

Re: Hello Everybody!

Hi and welcome.

I am so jealous of all these cool Brera owners-to-be.

It is gorgeous. Enjoy it and your time on AO.
