Just test drove a spider - questions?
Just drove a spider, generally really liked it but a few concerns, wondering if this is normal?
1. Engine pulled cleanly, didn't seem initially as 'nippy' as the GF's Puma but once warmed up seemed nice and lively, however at idle with the bonnet up it seemed quite nosiy (but I had a straight 6 merc before this)
2. New Hood about a year ago but it needed a very slight helping hand when opening the rear part (didn't 'pop' out), but operated fine otherwise on both opening & closing
3. Permanent very faint high pitched sound from the rear (fuel pump from the searches I've done?)
4. Windows close against hood, unless doors closed carefully?
It's a good deal with some minor cosmetics but a great mechanical history, so opinions greatly appreciated?
