Re: Spider Limited Edition Pictures!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i think the le was added to the configurator a week or so ago.
makes me wonder if its going to end up being badged se or simlar and being part of the range if interest and sales as a result are kept up.it will certainly raise brand awareness which is what alfa need with the mito and other new models entering a crowded market in difficult times.
the spider if properly marketed and priced can provide day to day promotion just from people seeing how good it looks - as other posts from dario have noted there is a strong positive reaction.
while the dynamics of the spider are no match for the z4 etc at the le price level it undercuts them and looks so much more stylish and desireable that i think that for most people that is no longer an issue.
i think that alfa have a number of "i must have that car" models eg spider,brera,159 and probably mito that if promoted properly can do very well for them.i just hope all goes well over the next year as a good start has been made with the new dealers adding to the network and the spider le creating interest esp when people start to see more about.
can't wait to see the mito as well as i'll be in the market for 2 cars of that type early next year.
p.s.if anyone from alfa reads this why not invite some of us to a customer clinic pre launch to give feedback on the car,spec,pricing,marketing etc.little cost and genuine feedback from your customers rather than from the usual customer clinics of people who probably have never owned an alfa and never will.if its not right for us then you have got little chance of selling it to anyone.
