Great job Danman, whatever you do dont go adding the figures up.

Should you ever get bored and fancy a weeks holiday down South then Im sure I could find you a few things to do.

Any other mods in the pipeline ?

Great looking car!


Any spelling/ grammatical errors are purely there to annoy!

Nice car.


In my point of view it would look betrer if the wehhl arches would follow the wheels - a tad higher especially the rear.

But othe than that a realy great looking car pain..interrior - verry nice and clean looking

Anything done to the engine?

I am selling a pair of unused Prodrive Brera back boxes this weekend on Fleabay. I bought them some months ago but the car is being traded in for a GQV so never fitted them - pity as they look great and would probably sound it too.
(also selling 4 brakes hoses, bleeder etc and maybe the unopened pack of Ferodo DS2500 pads if these don't fit the GQV)

My 2006 Brera seemed very prone to bad gravel rash on the front of the rear wheel arches - did later ones have a protection film?
I had them repainted in Feb but they were as bad as ever after a month.
The drivers seat also had a large scuffed area which I treated with leather restore from Gliptone Leather Care | Leather Cleaner
you need 'very dark grey' in their list for the lighter areas - I was amazed at how effective it was.

My 2009 Brera has protection film on the rear arches, though that in itself is a pain in the bum when you're detailing the car as it looks awful. I find the only way to make it blend into the paintwork is to spray it with back to black bumper stuff once I have washed n waxed the car.

Such a nice car.

Really weirdly I have the exact same Pioneer unit and horrible job fitting it. Haha.

I may have missed in thread, but did you get the central fascia retouched somehow? Looks so much cleaner and neat then mine.

Do you mean the black plastic one around the head unit? Its just the one in the box, was in good condition when i got it.

Or do you mean the brushed aluminium one? I've been pretty careful with it, no keys on the Brera key, etc.

Thanks. I meant the brushed aluminium one. Mine wasn't grand when I got it. It's not bad but someone made the mistake of key rings, which I don't do.

Car looks great mate, if you ever come to sell the prodrive back boxes let me know as one of mine has some imperfections. Also if you return the shocks back to standard i'd be interested in the coilovers...lol
