Newbie Alfa Owner
Hello, im Jay, new to Alfa's but a car enthusiast so learning more about them, more specificially the Spider (seems to be spelt spyder in many places for some reason).
I have just bought a 2001 3.0 V6 spider and collect it next week. I was hoping to get a pre 2001 for tax purposes but wanted the V6, shame Alfa could have made some earlier ones...
I bought it from an Alfa dealer near me in London who had it as a part ex. Went for a drive and it was as good as sold. Its comes with 12 months warranty, 12 months tax, 12 months MOT and 12 months service. It has a full Alfa history and only has 36k on the clock so I think it was worth paying a tad more for it from a dealer as its a goodun. The garage are going to refurb the alloys and repair the scratches on it which is good. The options on it are the red leather and cd changer.
Insurance isnt too bad either, 1k (im 24 and live in London), fuel i know wont be great but its a weekend car so wont be driven much so that wont be an issue.
There dont seem to be many around of these so was pleased to find a good one and im looking forward to the dry (hot or cold i dont care) days to have the roof down...
The mods i plan are to replace the side repeaters with clear ones (as the car is silver) and upgrade the sound system.
I will be lurking around here so look forward to some friendly banter. Apologies for the long post!
