I have been a very happy Spider owner for the past year and sadly it is the time to let her go as Im looking forward to purchase another convertible. Here is a brief spec and description of the car.
Alfa Spider 2003 2.0 JTS Lusso Phrase 3 face lifted
IN VERY GOOD CONDITION (No breakdown since I owe the car at April last year)
38XXX miles covered
2 keys along with manual and full service history
18'' unmarked alloys with very good condition falken tyres (covered approx 4000 miles)
Red leather with red carpets
Momo handbrake and gear knob
Sony bluetooth MP3 head unit with Fusion 4 channels amp, Kappa components front speakers and 12'' JBL subwoofer
clear side repeaters
Maintenance that has been done for the past year:
New thermostat - by Autolusso
Immobiliser re-wiring - by Autolusso
New oil filter and oil change - by Autolusso
Wheel alignment - by Autolusso
Heath check - by Autolusso (No faults found)
New spark plugs
Weekly top up of Volvoline Max Life 10w/40
New hood motor gear installed
Now here are the minor problems I have had with the car:
Ignition barrel-key stuck inside the barrel - fixed
Immobiliser not recognising the key - fixed
car temperature does not hit 90oC in normal driving condition- new thermostat replaced - fixed
Powerhood problem- new hood motor gear installed - fixed
Things that will need to get done:
Possibly a new cam belt as the last belt was changed in mid 2008.
Maybe power flexing the car, but the original bushes are still in very good condition because of the low mileage
That's about all the description of the car that I can think of. The car at the moment is in really lovely condition and everything are working as they should. No problems with the electric hood (common fault) and engine is very lively and healthy as you would expect with such a low mileage car. I have thought of exporting it to my home country (Alfa Spiders are extremely rare in Hong Kong) but after a long debate i decided to let her go. I have not place it up on Autotrader or Pistonheads yet as I would like to see if any of the Alfa members would be interested in the car first.
This car does turn heads especially with the roof down. As i said, I have been very pleased with the car and it will surely become a classic in the near future. I have tried to describe the car as honest as i could and please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
Car will be listed at GBP 5200 ONO
