Got the Alfa Bug (Again !!!)
I part exchanged my Giulietta Veloce 16 months ago for a Jeep Renegade but over the last 12 months I started to miss that special, feel good factor that only a Alfa Romeo can give.
After spending a good 12 months of dreaming on ebay & Autotrader I decided to bite the bullet & get my self a 1999 916 TS Lusso Spider.
I was drawn to this one a having an unusual colour combination of silver paintwork & tan leather (never seen another one). It's a one owner vehicle with 109k on the clock but the interior is in pristine condition & the body work is also excellent.
I have already changed the front badge & side repeaters to clear, Only cosmetic jobs left is to repaint the wipers arms, mirror housings & grill mesh. Also managed to find an oval stainless exhaust tip on ebay to go over the existing very rusty trim (not fitted yet).
Mechanically the car has just had a service & all the belts, tensioners, pulleys, water pump etc has been done. Will need remove the cover sills & wheel arc liners to ensure the rust bug has not taken hold.
I have attached a few photos, the GT Black line in the back ground is my Dads car.
