  2. Brera fuel cap

Twice now over the last 10 months the fuel cap didn't flip open. On both occasions having tried repetitively...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi everyone, I know that there is an exact thread about this with 1 person saying that these rims fit, but they fit VERY CLOSE, however that article is from 2014, so I'm looking into any new answers if these wheels will fit on the Brera without issues.

    Hi, Was driving to work today and I noticed that my Brera was not returning to idle RPM(900 usually) like usual but would hover around 2000 - 1500 RPM and then return slowly to 900 RPM. No check engine is showing up. I am yet to find my OBD scanner so not sure if anything has been recorded...

    Hi everyone. After years of delays we are now considering building a pair of decat exhaust manifolds for the Brera/Spider and 159 3.2 V6. Is there anyone on here who would still be interested? We had lots of interest in these in 2016 & 2017 but not so much recently, so I thought I would ask...
