I have been looking to change my 159 for a Brera, what year were they face lifted and what are the differences?
Thanks.

2008.
Interior updated. Dark dash rather than silver, better looking chairs.

Thanks, so a 2008 with a silver dash insert is pre face lift? Sounds like an easy way to tell, is the pre facelift metal dash insert the same metal inserts as my 159 or painted.

prefacelift silver dash is brushed aluminium, not painted.

the facelift seats looks better, and the carpet and door trims and headlining are a darker shade (headlining is black instead of cream)

there are 08 plate prefacelifts, its so quick to tell though.

supposedly on the facelifts, the skyview was an optional extra, whereas on prefacelift it was standard

Pre 2008 has more comfortable seats and no external boot badge release.
Although for the Spider at least, the boot badge (non release type) is £100 just for the badge! The release version is much cheaper!:furious:
