VW passat


Just wanted to say Hi. I dont yet have an Alfa, but I'm considering buying a 2001 Spyder. I build 4x4 expedition vehicle for people as a job and have to to a point where I want do have a change of vehicle style.

I have got to 45, and never owned or even driven an open top sports car. I have had a lot of motorbikes though and found myself looking at BIG cruiser bikes...I guess it could be a getting older thing going on... Then by chance my head was turned by a coool looking sports car.. a V6 Silver spyder with RED leather seats.. and well.. I could now be on a slippery slope on the way to buying one... should I be worried.. or should I embrace Alfa ownership and get one of these beautiful cars? My wife and daughter and dogs think I have lost the plot considering a 2 seat sports car... where are they all going to sit? But I have justified the intened purchase as its half the price of the cruiser bike, They seem to be such a lot of car for so little money, are they really to good to be true. I live down in Devon and thought there could be some club things that I could get invloved in the South West?

Any advice pointers tips would be appreciated on spyders, the one I am looking at is a 3.0 V6.. Is this a good choice as my first Alfa?

Many thanks in advance
