So I bring the prized Spider 946 in Red with Gun metal 8c wheels into my Alfa Specialist mechanic I used to use to give it the once over.
Discover the front right panel has been repaired lately and the paint job isn't up to scratch. The power steering reservoir has a leak. Slight oil leak as well. Mechanic confirms for a three-year old car, its been by and large neglected. Would need at least a few ks in repairs.
Had my heart set on that Spider. Glad the check was done. What was annoying was the seller didn't tell me about the recent repair to the front right panel above the wheel. When the mechanic pointed it out, simply received a "Oh yeah, we hit a post whilst parking". So the question beggars. What else did they hide?
Needless to say, passed on the Spider. Gutted.
