First Posted on here a week or so ago as I was trying to find a suitable Spider LE..... Happy to say I have an am now the proud owner of a 08 LE in black which I picked up yesterday and have not yet stopped smiling
. So pleased I chose this over a TT or Boxster, although I might now be a bit biased I think these is not many cars out there this side of a (dare I say it) Ferrari that look this stunning and certainly not for sub £20k with 2 years warrantee still to run!!
Collected the car from Telford and drove back to Kent yesterday and loved every minute, it's been a good while since I’ve tried to think places to go just so I can drive the car there.
This is my first taste of Alfa ownership having come from many years of German vehicles (X5, Mark 1 TT, 330 Convertible etc) and have to say it does feel like you’re driving something a bit more special.
Anyway…I’ve got a couple of questions I was hoping you could help me with
1) The front 2 tyres are nearing the end of there life and after any suggestions of what to replace the standard P Zeros with? I’ve had Toyo’s on my last couple of ‘performance’ cars and wondered what people generally prefer to use on their Spiders?
2) Sat Nav options, I’m sure this has been covered before on her and did a search on both Brera and Spider, my choice is whether to mount a tom tom type nav next to the centre console and hard wire it in or replace the double din unit. As I think with all LE’s mine has Blue and Me and not sure yet if this would be compatible with a replacement unit, say by Pioneer. Quite keen to keep the standard look inside so wondering what other may have done to solve their route finding issues!?
