It does not get any better.
I have a Spider in red with only 4000 miles on the clock '59 plate', When I purchased the car I paid £600 and had venture shield fitted (Highly Recommended) to the front bumper the front of the bonnet front wings and front lights.
The paint has chipped of down both sides doors cills and rear wing. Alfa approved the respray down the sides within a week of taking the car into my local dealer. Their paint specialist said it was the worst he had seen. There are chips on the bonnet as well.
Paint is also peeling of the edge of the rear bumper with a large bubble hole on the edge of the front bumper.
I feel the only reason the paint is intact on the front is due to the venture shield.
The overall build quality of the car is very poor, its been back to the dealers 7 times the hood failed twice, new motors fitted, with various other trim items being replaced, waited 8 months for a seat cover.
Great looking car but I will move away from Alfa as soon as I can!
With the motor industry aware of the issues it going to be a hard car to get rid of.
Cost £22000 current value scrap, my local Mazda dealer won't touch it!!
