American living in Italy

I'm an American living permanently in Italy, currently shopping around for a Spider around year model 2007 or 2008. My "nice" car, at the moment, is a like-new Honda Jazz. It's a typical Honda; i.e. perfect in every way except it has no soul.

I'm blessed to be living in an area (Southern Piedmont) with fantastic roads on which I ride a Ducati Monster motorcycle. The bike provides just about as much fun as and old guy like me can tolerate. Unfortunately, owning the Ducati made me realize that the fun factor associated with my Honda Jazz was down around zero.

I have an Opal Corsa diesel for my daily beater and grocery getter. It's also pretty dull, but it allows me the luxury of owning a second car which isn't quite so practical as my Honda. So I have my eye on a couple of Spiders at the moment and with a little luck I'll be an Alfa owner for the first time within a week or two.

Thank you; I purchased a black 2007 from an Alfa dealership yesterday.

The bad news is that the top operation is sluggish. It goes down fine and the top will go up and lock OK but the rear cover doesn't always close and latch down properly after putting the top up.

The good news is that the dealer is replacing the hydraulic pump at no charge to me under the 12 month guarantee. He was complaining a little bit about the part costing him 1500 Euros. Better him than me.
