Spider 2.4 JTDM Fuel econonmy & reliabilty
Looking to get a 2.4 Spider, just test driven one .. couple of questions for you guys.
Test drive was about 5 miles .. start/stop around a town ..got a couple of good stretches. Revved it quite a bit, but also some smooth driving. The mpg avg on the trip was 21mpg. Does this sound about right. I will be doing alot of motorway miles .. and hope to get over 30-35mpg on average ? Just want to check if on a revved short test drive the 21mpg sounds ok ?
The car (2008) had done 39k miles, last year only 3k. The dealer just hd to replace the alternator & battery. Should i be concerned about this in anyway .. or just grateful that its now been done !
Seems like the best idea given comments on this forum. Alfatune sound great. Can anyone comment on their expereince with insurance companies .. how much extra premium. I've quoted £250 for the std set-up, but wondering how much a remap is likely to concern them.
Any help/advice welcomed .. just love the Spider, and trying to convinve myself that I can use for the approx 12k miles/annum I will do.
