My Bella... '97 Alfa Spider TS
Hi guys & gals,
Last October I bought a beautiful 2.0 TS Spider (lusso spec)... and have been loving every moment of driving her!
She has 123000 Kms, and it pretty much standard, except for the shield that I fitted a P2 one (feel it does a lot more justice to the beauty of the car), debadge when got reprayed, and fitted the 156/147 style wheel badges.
The colour is metallic black with black leather interiors... and is in stunning shape, except of course for the sticky centre console...
Here are some pics... the first one is of the day I got her, and the second is of the second when I took her for a drive on a coastal mountain road...
At the moment I'm having a problem with the battery getting drained in one week, and the wires and connectors to the cooling fan resistors gone toast...
Other things that need to get sorted:
1. I need a toolkit or at least a tow-hook... the previous owner didn't think it needed it LOL
2. Tubing from the airbox to the induction butterfly need replacing, as it's cracked open... I've mended it with duck-tape but it looks ugly. Alfa in Portugal says part is discontinued...
3. Centre console need renovation... would like to get a second one to attempt it...
sorry for the long post...
all the Best
