hello everibody: I'm from caracas, venezuela, i have been reading your forum for a long time, and just now i decided to take part of it. i am a proud owner of an Alfa romeo Spider Lusso 3.0 v6 12v, year 98, it has 75000 km, i bought it from new, i am 44 years old, engineer but dedicated to commercial affairs (toys stores), i was born in italy, but my family came here 41 years ago, for that reason i feel myself venezuelan. I ask your pardon for my english, i will do my best to make myself clear to you. Alfa romeo arrived here on 1996 and left it on 2002, they have intentions to return but is not for sure, meanwhile the owners of an alfa are becoming orphans of spare parts and maintenance because FIAT is not importing spares for that cars. For now I just want to tell you that I am very proud of Alfa Romeo (my other cars are a Toyota Celica GT 2.0 and Renault Scenic 1.6) and all that represent, especially on design, I feel that the company is going in the right direction in terms of design an reliability (my dream is an Alfa Romeo with the reliability and assembling of Toyota), and in the days to como I will ask you to help me to discover some troubles that i am having with my spider. Thanks to all of you.
