This is a tough one.
Taxed and tested is a plus.
Diesel is a plus as well, but the engine size/emissions aren't.
The fact that (to me) the Brera is a very niche car (more so than the GT I think - that's not a criticism, just an opinion) is not in your favour - if someone is searching for a coupe, would they even think to include a Brera?
Advertise it in as many places as possible - DoneDeal, Adverts.ie, Carzone (even if it is a rip off these days), Octane, Pistonheads (not great for Irish cars, but you never know)
What do you need to get for the car? That's a good starting point. You can then decide if you won't accept a penny less, or, advertise for a slightly higher price, with the expectation that you will have to concede some ground to a buyer, but you still achieve the price you need.
If you look at a 3 Series Coupe, 320ds seem to have private sale asking prices of around €18,000 (330s/335s have higher prices again, but you seem to think that €18,000 is too high anyway, why look at 330s/335s even if they are more similar to the 2.4)
All things considered, I think €17,000 is probably a good starting point, but that still feels expensive in this day and age.
One thing I would advise is not to put 'ONO' or 'Price negotiable' in any ad - what's the point?
It's a great car, and if I was changing the GT, I'd be keen to talk to you.
