Re: I'm thinking about buying a 1999 Spider 2.0 TS
I am just in the process of compiling a Spider buying guide which hopefully will be ready for posting on here next week.
If you can pm me with your,e mail I can forward a draft copy of what I have so far.
Also,yes you should make sure you get the master key.Without it you won`t be able to programme replacement keys.
I have a friend with a gtv v6 in Kent and he takes his car to Gonnella Bros in SE London.Should be in the gargage review section.Main delaers generally are expensive and most independents are actually enthusiasts themselves,and give you far better service,even if they can`t offer you nice premises and a cup of coffee!
Make sure you check the hood very carefully and you see it put up,especially if its a lusso with the powered hood.Also ask if the cambelt has been changed if the car has 36k or more miles.Check rear suspension bushes too.
Hope this helps.
Pic of the master key is below on left,together with the code tag,which you will also need:
