Well i've finally had enough, not with the car, but with the dealers. I purchased from the main dealer (as you all advised) a Jan 2001 2.0ts 16V Spider. A real looker red, black lusso leather, upgraded 5 spoke alloys. I've known about alfa's and expected some minor problems. But when the dealer takes 6 visits per minor (and i mean minor), it's a joke. laughing It would come out with more god damn problems, and the original wasn't fixed !!!!!!
I ended up travelling 120 mile round trip to sort everything.
So reluctantly she's going. I haven't enjoyed the motoring in this car, and i think it deserves to be enjoyed.
If you want her, give me more than dealer is offering me and she's yours.
