My Brera 2.2 JTS petrol is currently displaying check engine error code - & is off road, until getting her chain done at end of this month, to resolve current stretched chain fault codes. I would like any guidance please...

    Hi folks, I'm curious to know what modernisations or improvements you've all made to your Breras? I have a 2008 Brera S 2.2 and would like to give it a little bit mnore polish with some tasteful improvements. I'm eying up a fresh set of Michelin PS4s and a suspension freshen up. However, are...

    Hi everyone, Am trying to obtain chain replacement quotes for my Alfa Brera JTS PETROL 2.2 (2007): I have been asked the question - if the car has Variable Valve Timing (VVT) or not? Any assistance would be most appreciated as always, please 👍

    Hi all, Carried out a first oil / flush out & oil filter change/ spark plugs / air filter on my previously abused Brera 2.2 petrol JTS. Engine protection panel seized fixings added to the story ... Emptied over 5lts of tar? Put in 5lts of fully synthetic in, to find oil stick seems to state...

    Hi everyone, Just recently enquired my first Alfa, so glad to be in the club ✊. Please can someone kindly advise me: Where is the above camshaft sensor location? As I have lost an hour trying to source thorough all previous threads.. Have enclosed a picture. Trying to resolve the dreaded P0016 &...
  8. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Breda spider: my armrest boot button has stopped working, so to pop the boot I have to (switch off, pull out key, then) press the key fob button. Very inconvenient if I am driving to a pickup point. Mechanic says "too hard / very costly" to trace the wires. Also, annoyingly, the button...
  9. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    So a couple of days ago I bought my first Alfa Romeo. A 2006 Brera 2.2 JTS with only 125k kilometers on it. I drove it a bit and it seemed to run like a dream. Since I've never bought a car with such low mileage I figured there is little change the engine is worn out already. Besides that the...
  10. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi Everyone, My Brera ('07, 80k, 2.2 JTS) has an issue to crops up every now and again. Listen to this: As far as I can tell, it's mostly when it is cold and a quick restart cures it. The idle is fine but as you ease off the clutch and into the accelerator, the chugging/clunking sound starts...
  11. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    At slow speeds (which is when I can hear it) it sounds like a vacuum cleaner running up front. Started suddenly today. When starting off, sound increases when I turn the wheel. Tech guy over the phone (it's Christmas Eve 4:50pm!) said it sounds like a power steering failure. Don't run it. Our...

    I’m not affiliate at all, but found this exhaust on eBay Ulter Sport Mufflers Exhaust ALFA ROMEO SPIDER/BRERA 2009-2010 Backbox Silencer | eBay which seems identical to what Veloces offers at their shop. It’s cheaper because it’s cast instead of stainless steel and we’re buying directly from...

    I bought an aux cable for my car so I can listen to music on the radio, and it's built for my car. I fit it where the green mini iso would be. I plugged the aux cable to my phone and it doesn't work. I tried diffrent places but it still doesn't work. Can anyone one give me suggestions why. thanks
  14. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi I got a 2006 Alfa Romeo brere I'm really struggling to open my boot of my car since I got 2 new keys programmed I tried all th suggestions like looking for a wire under the rear seats I couldn't find any, I looked on the menu on my car and there's only boot rease notification. I had a look at...
  15. Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    Ah! It was all going along so nicely until a couple of weeks ago when I noticed the water temperature on my Brera beginning to rise while idling in traffic. Thankfully no damage (we think), but cue a visit to the mechanic nonetheless. A point of possible interest is that she was blowing cool...
  16. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hey there my Alfa Romeo brere key phob is broken and I bought a virginized key. I called the locksmith to program it to my Alfa Romeo brere, but the ignition needs to turn on so I got my old Alfa phob blade and see put it in the little hole next to where you put the phob in and that didn't work...
  17. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I recently purchased '06 Brera 2.2 JTS with manual gearbox and 90000 miles, mainly for its looks, not interested in performance or a real sports car tbh. Basically in 1st and 2nd gear the acceleration is so erratic it makes the car feel like it's driving over some bumps then suddenly it picks up...

    My Alfa is in excellent condition throughout, having recently had a refurbished front subframe, new front springs and shock absorbers, and 4 new Uniroyal rain sport tyres, and wheel alignment carried out. The cam chain has been replaced and the car drives faultless. The interior and paintwork...
  19. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    This is purely hypothetical but...is it possible to swap a 1750 TBI engine in for a 2.2 JTS. I've recently taken ownership of a rather lovely Brera S with the 2.2 engine and figure that the ideal Brera is essentially the Prodrive fettled S with its looks and trick suspension matched with the...
  20. Introduce Yourself
    Hi All! 'Recently' bought a 2008 Alfa Brera 2.2 Prodrive! As you can tell from the images, its not quite standard... Definitely not for the purists out there, but I have no regrets buying it. Hasn't skipped a beat in the nearly 5 months I've owned it, just a few things I've noticed that i'll be...
