I guess I am preaching to the choir here, but, I have to say I was blown away by a 2001 Spider 24v v6 with 62,000k's on the clock, red with black interior.
I drive a SAAB lpt vert and thought there could be no way that the Spider would be a huge amount better to warrant a change, well, I will be the first to say that this vehicle ticked all the boxes for me.
Interior - great, even though seats are quite firm I found them to be very comfortable and supportive, dash looks great at night, steering wheeel size is perfect for a drivers car, not keen on stock radio as it seemed to be very very fiddly, ventilation seemed fine and should be okay for cold Canberra winters.
Handling - very surprised, tight, direct, and very responsive, far superior to my Holden err I mean SAAB.
Power - well what can I say, brilliant, tooling around in 4th at low speed and take off as easy as pie, what with the note of the exhaust it is a great combination.
Wonderful car, as long as dealer comes to the party as in getting cam belt change done and a few other things then we are talking deal in the next few days.
Very very impressed, my very first Alfa too, so it is a fine introduction.
