New addition to the fleet arrived yesterday evening
Used 1999 Alfa Romeo Spider TS LUSSO 16V for sale in Cleveland | Pistonheads
I negotiated the price a little as there is no evidence of a recent cambelt and I was very circumspect about the drive from her old home in Teeside yesterday evening to Cheshire but she is booked in to HRG in Sandbach for a new belt next Thursday.
Other issues to be fixed are
Boot & Fuel Cap solenoids inoperative - short somewhere and/or rear compartment fuse ?
Airbag light - it wasn't on when I test drove but someone has moved the seat with the engine running I suspect. Alfie is well versed at this but it may spur me to buy the necessary cable and learn to do it myself - never had one on either of the GTVs though.
Doors catching roof and therefore not shutting properly - window adjustment required.
Both alarm fobs have seen better days - checking Ebay for replacement covers.
Other than that she's very tidy. Genuine 38k miles. Drives perfectly. 4 new Tyres and new Brakes all round. Hood working Ok and in very good condition. Bodywork very good - couple of scuffs - tiny bit of surface rust in a wheelarch. The aerial works!
I drove half way back with the hood down and got an early Alfa wave from a Brera carrying a T??GTV plate.
Needless to say its ****ing down today!!
