Any Spider experts out there?
I'm looking for sensible opinions from Spider/Alfa owners who will potentially save me from making a reckless decision...
Am considering buying a Spider and would be very grateful for anyone's advice. Particularly, will it be relatively reliable? Is it a fair price? Should I take a closer drive or walk away?
Below I've copied the vendor's info:
Alfa Spider 2 litre Convertible, Right Hand Drive (conversion done by Lombada Sport)
Petrol, rear wheel drive
Built in 1989
Full service history, serviced at an Alfa specialist
Every bill and MOT from January 1991
MOT till Feb06 (passed 1st time)
Soft top roof
Car given makeover by Lombada Sport and therefore has: colour bumers, not the black ones, full leather, private plate, Nardi steering wheel, leather Tonneau (Cover for the hood), Alfa dust cover if garaged and full outdoor car cover.
Leather interior, Stereo (including 12 CD changer and amp in the boot), Electric Windows, CAT2 alarm and imobiliser.
Engine is in superb shape having had a head rebuild a year ago
New clutch slave cylinder put in last summer
'Real head turner and a lot of car for the money, cracking car and if in perfect condition worth about £5k'
BAD POINTS: cosmetic, paint chip, some paint bubble on the rear wheel arches. It has been like that for 3 years and has not got any worse.
So, what do you think?? I can email pics directly (too large for forum).
