Re: About to purchase a Spider 07
hi there nd welcome. You have to bear in mind that the mjority of posts on here are from people trying to fix problems with their cars. The good news is that if there's a problem, it will be listed on here. The fact that you have correctly spotted that the biggest issues with the Spider are potentially a rocking drivers seat which is easily fixed by the dealer, and front tyre wear (which is fixed by setting the front tyres to parallel) should in fact inspire great deal of confidence!
This new generation of Alfas are very solid and generally reliable. Nothing on the road looks like a Spider and they are nice to drive. Only thing that bugs me is the suspension is softer than my Brera and it has a touch of scuttle shake as it is a soft top, but coming from a cabriolet the Spider will be the same or hopefully better - they are very rigid cars relatively speaking.
Go for it, you won't regret it. Looks like you already know what faults to look for.
