    Hi Alfa owners!! I purchased a 159 2.2 Ti recently, it has been running extremely well and honestly not missed a beat. I purchased it with 98,000 on the clock from a dealership. The previous owner was the only owner from new and there was no book provided to confirm the service schedule...

    Hello 👋 Joined a while back looking for advice on a slight clutch issue that seems to have resolved itself. Bought a 2006 Brera SV 3.2 chassis #2313 at the end of January off a small dealership in Cork. Having saw a Brera a week prior at a car auction lot across the road from my workplace, I...

    Help! Just scraped through MOT with an Alfa Brera 2.2S - Prodrive tuned one with Eibach springs. Anyone know where I might be able to source replacements or alternatives? I saw a post on here from 2017 where someone ordered some bespoke manufactured springs of this type - so Im aware that this...

    Hi All, New to the forums 👋 I purchased a 2006 Brera 3.2 V6 Q4 MT a month ago and I've noticed the clutch pedal doesn't seem to come straight back up. When pressing down, it comes back 85% of the way but the last bit it seems to hesitate for two seconds. Also, when shifting between second and...

    Has anyone tried to swap the 2.2 jts from the Alfa Romeo spider 939/946 and put the 1750 turbo motor? What will be the cost for something like that ? Is it even possible? Do they share similar parts? Is the wiring / ecu different?

    I've been asking for some advice here before/after purchasing a Brera. Thought it would be nice to share some first photos in return. No questions this time, just enjoy the pictures! First attempt to take some images of the Alfa that I own since a month now. The car wasn't cleaned and was still...

    From what I've heard camber can't be adjusted (neither front or rear) on the Brera (1750 Ti). Is this right? That would mean only toe in/out is adjustable. Asking because the guy that did the alignment said he did camber as well, but I don't think this is even possible. Thanks, AutoAlfa

    Hello everyone, I have a 2006 brera 2.2 jts. When i open the door (passenger and driver) the window drops about a third of the way. If I then close and open the door the window drops another third. When I press the window buttons to go up the passenger side goes straight up but the drivers side...

    Hello! I have a 2010 Alfa Romeo Brera 2.0 JTDm (163hp). I would like to replace my old intake manifold with a new one but I am not sure which manifold would fit. Can you guys send me the exact OE number? I found manifold for the 2.0 170hp version are both of them the same regarding the intake...

    Hi. On what should have been a routine lightbulb replacement job for the rear driver's side brake light of my Brera 2.2, I managed to do the following: 1. drop one of the retaining nuts down into the bodywork (despite the warnings on this forum)! 2. drop my brand spanking new 10mm deep socket...

    Hello All, Today I had a test drive in a Brera 1750 TBI TI. The car is ten years old, so some optical imperfections were to be expected. The car drives and responds very well. A few issues surfaced when I inspected the car. I would like to ask if people here have experience with these issues...

    Car: Brera 2.2JTS Check engine light is on with P1670 code, rough idle when warm, could randomly go worse and stall. Giving gas sometimes make it calmer for a bit. The fuel rail pressure fluctuates fast between 2400-3600Kpa. My local mechanic suspected the high fuel pressure regulator and...

    So my Brera’s driver’s side’s wing mirror is malfunctioning. It doesn’t fold in, but if manually folded in, it can fold out eventually despite taking longer than the other side, as well as making a weird click noise. It feels like a gear in its folding mechanism has worn out. I went to check...

    Hi, this might sound like a stupid question but I’m going to ask it anyway. I finally ended up buying a 2.2JTS Brera a few days ago and so far I’m in love. I was researching the other day at different body kits etc for the Brera‘s to give it some extra road presence and came across this post...
