Re: new Spider feedback
I really like the Brera, but the Spider is much better looking. Drove the 3.2 one a bit at one of the Alfa Experience days last year, and I liked it. Not stunningly fast, but that's not what it's about - it's not a roadster and I think it's certainly fast enough for a grown-up convertible.
Of course, there'll likely now be a torrent of posts about how much faster the TT convertible is, or how much better value the 350z convertible is, or whatever, but for me that's not the point. It's a lovely thing, and comparing it to something lighter / faster / cheaper does nothing to diminish the car itself.
