Great site; like the hardtop, maybe for the winter..
My Spider is also a 2.0 TS, black metallic, 17' Zender monza Elegance (www.zender.de) and Zender tankcap, Zender AR chrome entrance plates, alu. parts inside as well, build in and foldable windshield, chiptuning & Madeno exhaust system (www.madeno.nl) -> 170 Hp, Clarion CD system, latest grill. Got high speed winter tires+wheels but never really use them. Also, I still have the orignal wheels, so if you know someone interested in those, let me know.
Never had any real problems construction wise; I amazed by the softtop shich in my case is : no leaking, no troubles: perfect!
I do a lot of preventive maintenance, so I never really had any problems. (I also had a 155 V6 bordeau-red: beautifull car, but had to sell it because two cars is a bit too much)
I'll send some pictures of both soon.
