They probably don't want to spend the money. Quite how they dreamt up that price, I have no idea

I looked at a Silver Spider that was for sale in East London (in November 2015) and that had both the hoop covers missing, the seller didn't know they should have been there, until I pointed it out.

I have a feeling mine must have had a hood problem in the past, because mine doesn't catch on anything and theres a good amount of clearance during the folding operation. I do get the normal cracking sound though. I say this because my hood has some tiny marks where it's clearly caught on something in the past ( I was aware of this when I negotiated the price ).

Specialist Alfa dealers have always asked a lot more money for their cars than anyone else.
I agree, the price for that one is absurd.
13k for a 7.5 year old car that was only 25.5k when brand spanking new.
Veloces are the same.
But I guess you're likely to get the very best used cars from these people, you've just got to be prepared to pay for the privilege (and accept the odd missing roll hoop!).
