916 Spider....2.0 or 3.0L

I am looking to invest in a 916 Spider circa 2001.

I have been aware of the great rep of the Alfa 3.0 engine for many years, and was therefore looking at V6 versions only. A recent review article suggested that the the 2.0 L engine was better suited to the Spider.

Simple question .......2.0 Litre or V6? ( I anticipate less simple answers)

Hi and welcome to AO! Use the search facility on the site and you will find quite a bit of debate on the 2litre vs 3litre question.

The 916 Spider is a beautiful car and I'm sure you will love it whichever engine you choose.
