Was it an auto? My 2.0 Twinny can easily keep up with a 330i Automatic even with 4 people in the car

Just one supporter for my view of keeping the Spider and getting a run around then. Still the best option at the moment though I think....
Make that one more... i know too many people who have regretted selling alfas for something "sensible?"

Keep the spider, forget the germans (They are all overrated anyway) get yourself another alfa, with 4 seats, a 156? or 147? even a 146, all of which can be picked up at reasonable price.

Buy another spider! You and a child in one, and the missus and a child in the other.....seating problems solved and you get to have two spiders

Why not get a V6 Spider and then a runaround for all the boring stuff.
