Re: hello there
Thank you one and all. On surfing this forum I see that the dreaded windscreen creak has inflicted me as well. Still off out to buy some silicone grease so hope this cures it.
To be honest it was a choice between a 4/5 year old Maserati Coupe or a new Alfa and the Brera was the first choice until I test drove one and saw how impractical it was as far as room and passengers. The 159 is the same platform and more room and still has that 'exclusive almost supercar' feel. It won over the Masser when you look at fuel consumption, service costs and insurance and no warranty at that age.
Many years ago I had a TR6a in red and that was a looker and a puller (long before I met my wife I must add) and this car is certainly getting the looks and passers-by doing the duck down and inspect routine.
One last thing. Anyone know where I can get a good quality set of mats for it without the 70+ figure the dealer network have quoted please?
