Great German engineering!
So when I had the 159 I had a few failures on it, now 2 month in I have had my first failure on my Brera. To be expected when you own an Alfa Romeo I hear you say.
So what has failed?
To start with on the 159 there was:
Bosch ECU - German
Bosch high pressure fuel pump - German
The clutch and DMF flywheel failed - Sachs? Err German
Now on the Brera:
Eibach front coil spring broken - German (again)
For balance, I did have two drive shafts changed on the 159 knowing nothing otherwise I'll assume they were Italian.
Maybe a few more bits of our Alfa Romeos should be Italian, judging by my experience could make more reliable cars!
Someone said to me, "so whats so special about an Alfa Romeo then?" I told him, "If you have to ask, you wont understand".
