  1. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi all, first post here. I'm looking to lower my 2.4 Brera and improve the handling a bit, but I'm unsure how to do it. I've seen a few people have used the Eibach Pro-kit springs, which take it down by 30mm. However others have used or suggested Bilstein B12 or B16 coilovers. Is there a benefit...
  2. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi, I've owned my 2.2 brera S for 7 years now and my recent Mot has failed due to a cracked spring. I understand prodrive/eibach no longer manufacture these so Im looking for alternatives. Hoping for somthing which has similar height to the prodrive (anything lower is a bonus). I have looked at...
  3. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I was driving the Brera 2.2 normally last Friday which was moderately warm, when the water temp out of a sudden just went off the roof. Pulled over and found coolant everywhere under the hood. I then let it cool down a bit before topping the tank up with some water and drove it to the nearest...

    Posted a few days ago about my brera not starting. Had the BCM checked and it's apparently fine. After playing about with it again today we found that it would work absolutely fine when the purple clip in the picture is lifted. Does anyone know what this plug is for and what the issue could be

    My Brera 3.2 needs new front tyres... Currently have Roadstone 235/45zr18 98w... Keep the same? Anyone recommend others? Best places to go? (I'm near Lincoln btw) Is Mr Tyre OK? Any other advice?
  7. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    At last managed to pick up my "new" Brera yesterday, yee-ha... Inevitably I've had some issues - the worst of which is that the cover of the side indicator on the driver's side has come off... the other side is hanging off too, but think I can get away with a blu-tack fix there!! Is this a...

    So today I replaced the far side parking light on my Spider, The pull back ring snapped so I had to get the inspection camera out and do some dentist work with pliers. At least I didn’t had to remove half of the front car to get to it. Just in time for the MOT

    Hi, I have just scratched an itch and bought a Brera very recently. I am looking for some help to either replace or repair the drivers seat. The leather has taken a battering on the side supports. In addition, I need to find the chrome horizontal 'fin' that runs between the headlight and...

    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...
  11. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi guys, For 3 years I have been driving a Brera 2.4, 210hp, 2008 which is at about 235 000 km (145 000 mi). The car has been taken care of to the best of my abilities - oil and all filters changed regularly, as well as belts, water pump, glow plugs, battery, changed upper/lower front control...
  12. Insurance Section
    Hi I'm looking to purchase my first car and really want a Brera, I'm from Ireland where insurance is quite high, I have 2 years claims free driving as a named driver on my parents policy, I'm wondering roughly how much I can expect to pay to insure my Brera?

    It's a sad day, but a newborn baby on the way means that I have to see off my other baby. I've owned this 2.2 '07 for four years, and she's been looked after pretty well by Alfa specialists in the south (I have the receipts and FSH to back it up). Mileage is 84k, and I've just had a top-up...
  14. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi. On my MY08 Brera (S) I can no longer tilt forward the driver's side seat to get access to the rear and I believe this would be an MOT fail when it comes up in January. The handle itself moves but there's no resistance so clearly the cable is either broken or no longer attached. Is this a...
  15. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hello everybody I bought my very first Alfa Romeo on Monday - a 2006 Brera 2.4 JTDM SV. It has the original headunit and I am desperate to change it. From what I can see my car DOESN'T have any of the following: Blue & Me Bose speakers Aux input socket Therefore I need to get a HU that...
  16. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    The buttons on my climate control panel in my 2008 Spider were erratic in that sometimes they would work, sometimes they wouldn’t, sometimes ‘Auto’ worked, sometimes it didn’t. I came to the conclusion that the panel itself was faulty so bought a brand new one which looked exactly the same (the...
  17. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi all, I've recently purchased a 2009 Alfa Romeo Brera 2.4jtdm and it idles incredibly rough, I've recently had it in a garage and they cleaned the EGR and Map sensor, but said the rough idle is likely due to the injectors. I was thinking maybe swirl flaps? I'd just like some advice if anyone...
  18. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hello guys, I've just bought myself a nice 159 2.2JTS, however, the one main issue I've got is that the driver side window won't bloody go down! I've read the regulators are a common fault, but I just wanted to check that was the issue before I went and bought one. Basically, when I go to wind...

    Hi, I'm wondering if anyone can help me. I have a 2010 2.4 Brera, and recently my handbrake failed, and my pride and joy decided to roll back into a wall. I've got it booked in for painting, but the rear drivers side parking sensor has been smashed beyond repair. I ordered a new one, but I need...

    Hey everyone, A few months ago, our beloved greyhound has passed away, which means we don't need an estate anymore and would like to cheer ourselves up with something sporty, Italian and original. None other than a Brera comes to mind. I have wanted this car since my teens, now I am 30 and...
