Hi there just bought my first Alfa - a Brera 2.4 JTDM (2006), really pleased with it and just had the alloys refurbished (after this pic was taken). The colour was a big selling factor and of course the general design! Wish it did a few more MPG though as I was driving a 65 MPH Volvo C30!
I get an intermittent problem with the rear parking sensor too - some days it works others I get a warning on the dashboard telling me it's disabled. I sometimes get the same warning for the ABS.
The front windscreen wipers confuse me too - intermittent setting doesn't seem to turn off sometimes!
Oh well - for £4600 and a few quid spent on the alloys and a little patch up round the front wheel arches - I can't complain too much
