Siro All Spiders shake! However in my experience its no worse than many other open top cars.If you are really going for it on a bumpy B road it might cause you to back off a bit,but most of the time it is brilliant.
As for the V6,I have only driven the 2 litre which although is meant to be the better handler and a more rounded car,I would still love the V6.
Ah yes Pete, you saw through my new motoring plans! I really fancy a Spider/GTV before the advent of a nipper much as yourself I suppose Could be in either Blighty or Holland which both have Spiders/GTV's (bloody cheap in Holland). Insurance is another thing. I pay £710 per year at the mo. I think in the UK this will be somewhat higher (31 yrs, driving license for 1 yr)
