Very Nice Rob!

Glad you decided to stay with the Bravo! Im guessing you kept some of you old bits and bobs to transfer over?

Looking forward to seeing it in the flesh sometime soon!

Looks very tidy! Is the only difference on the facelifts the headlights?

Re: facelift T-Jet Sport 150 in Maranello Red

Loving the car, as expected several subte detail improvements including speedo that you can actually read!

Car feels as new, suspension tight and composed handling
Ride noticably stiffer although leather seats contribute to this feeling

Pics and more observations coming

Good choice RobW, I've had my 1.4 T150 approx 18 months and I never tire of driving it.

Re: facelift T-Jet Sport 150 in Maranello Red

Didn't drive it yesterday due to poor weather and summer tyres...

Just been to the local town along B roads about an hour combined

Still finding lots of detail changes including interior door handles now anthracite instead of silver
It has an alarm
It has rain sensitive wipers

All together with different wheels, climate control and leather seats adds up to feeling a lot different

Very pleased so far, reminds me of the Star Trek movies when Enterprise has been in for a refit, it's the same ship but looks and feels different and evolved

Can't upload pics by idevice so will follow

Re: facelift T-Jet Sport 150 in Maranello Red

The only thing I envy in the newer bravos is the improved blue&me. the old P.O.S blue&me in my car is like a senile grumpy thing with alzheimer's.

Re: facelift T-Jet Sport 150 in Maranello Red

I had in mind to do some subtle mods to the new one and have just bought a set of FK Silverline coilovers
like the idea of taking a bit out off the rideheight and playing with the damping

the other thing i have in mind is a Brembo brake upgrade, I recall that Alfa 159 parts will fit

and fit the TMC box of tricks
