Guess the latest Spider ailment

If it wasn't for bad luck I'd have no luck at all.

The roof has been just been replaced. Lovely job and I now have a fully functioning heated rear screen......

...... and some lovely new scratches on the windscreen.

Whole new windscreen required now.

Interestingly (or do I mean scarily?), the windscreen has to come from Italy. Presumably meaning that if it broke while driving it's a 'tow to a dealer' repair. According to the dealer, Autoglass don't list a replacement screen for the Spider or Brera. Modern windscreens are too complicated to fit at the side of the road apparently.

I should say that this latest problem isn't really Alfa's fault and is being dealt with without quibble. Still annoying though.

Bummer! Did Western do the damage when they fitted the new roof?

I've had a new windscreen from the RAC so I'm surprised there isn't one available for the Brera at least.

Western outsourced the roof fitting.

I can only repeat what they told me about the windscreen, maybe it isn't completely correct. Hope so, otherwise I'll be bubble-wrapping the front windscreen as well as the rear.

Cars are getting too complicated....... My next car will be a model T Ford at this rate.

SCSC you arent having much luck with that car - all I can say is that at least its off the road during the winter months.

It is a bit frightening that the screen has to come from Italy - you would think AR UK would keep a few in stock over here just in case.
