Hi all, just seen this thread and thought I'd add my 2p.
I have found said dealer to be nothing short of incompetent. When looking for a Brera, they were uninterested in searching for one for me amongst current stock, citing transport costs to be an issue (they didn't have the red S, this was last December). I bought my Brera whilst visiting family in Yorkshire.
Since then, they have charged me for work I didn't ask for or authorise, never bother to call to tell me when the car is ready, took 2.5 weeks to get some PAS fluid in stock, and damaged the door card whilst looking at the window regulator, and didn't even tell me they had. It was obvious damage and needed a complete replacement. They paid for the replacement, but didn't even fit it properly, meaning the window/mirror switch wasn't seated properly.
I think they believe because they're the only dealer for 120 miles they can get away with anything, and have a poor, lacklustre attitude to sales, service, and technical ability.
Apologies, rant over, but I certainly won't be using them again, they don't deserve my money.
Good luck with your Brera hunt, they're pretty special cars!
