Did it... when I think of what I just did... crazy, put deposit on a car I never saw, then sent money to get it chipped an dedpffed and its cat removed..mad crazy. I bought the car in Newbury from a garage called Italia Speed. The guys name there is Darren. Hes been working on Alfa's for years and all around the garage nothing but Alfas. From Classics to newish ones. I bought the Car as a black Brera 2.4 dtm... when I aw it for the first time...didnt look black to me,,sort of a funny glittery shiney grey...turns out its metalic black, Darren (my new bestest friend in the world) told me when I got the car out on the motorway it would bring a smile to my face....lies... more like every car I overtook I was laughing. Its up to around 275bhp and the power delivery is... un real. I drove from Newbury to Pembroke on £30stg of diesel average between 45 to 23mpg I was seldom below 80mph and mostly above that I didnt need to get any fuel till I got to Arklow. All the negative stuff about soft springs and road holding I read are as far as I am conserned are un true this is a real GT car comfortable and incredibly quick. I was stopped getting on the boat by four English Coppers and all they did was admire the car, same in Roslare by the Gards,,,that dosent happen too often. On the motorway the car was hitting around 80mph at 2500rpm in 6th and accelerate up to ....that speed... very quick and incredibly smooth. Its like a warp drive, jekel and hide,,,at 60 its a bit noisey but nice inside. Put your foot down and the engine note changes around 3000rpm and yu sort of hang on the speedo just keep moving,,,fairly rapid. I went after a car on the motorway here on the way back to Arklow..he/she passed me at an amazing rate of knots. When the car was about 1/4 mile away i sort of kind of went a small bit quicker..Last time I saw that speed on a clock was on a 1200cc motor bike..flat out,,,and the Brera wasnt flat out thats probably why i had to stop for diesel in Arklow.
