Re: gearbox and steering advice needed for newbie!
I have a 2001 Spider 3.0 v6, so I can let you know what my gearbox is like.
Extremely smooth to change, feels spring loaded, when downshifting it almost changes by itself into next lowest gear, not stiff at all, yes you can move easily enough in neutral.
Can not comment on MOT.
I had my airbag light come on during the week, a result of a passenger fiddling with connect down by seatbelt stalk (the was pre-tensioner connection), took it to Alfa mechanic and it cost me $20AUD to have it scanned and cleared in 10 mins.
Hope this helps
