Thickie Newbie

Hi. To the frustration of most of my mates I'm really not a car person but I seriously lusted after the alfa spider when I bought my Fiat500 a few years ago. So in a fit of happy madness (and great shock to my friends) I took my fiat500 back a month ago and chopped it in for an Alfa spider. And I am now very quickly becoming a car person.

However the first question is what is my car called? No seriously...
Told you I wasn't a car person, I actually had to ask one of my mates how Alfa and Audi could both have a spider. He looked at me very strangely and explained.

Anyway, Alfa have a few spiders and I've noticed on the forum they are called different things, so which is mine? It's a 58 plate Alfa Spider 2.2 JTS - The one based on the Brera. Is this a 946 Spider?

Also I've seen quite a bit about better economy after an engine remap.
Is this expensive?
Any good?
Can I do this myself?

(I'm joking about the last one) Thanks for your patience!

Have a look around here Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider - Alfa Romeo Forum for help and advice.

Welcome to AO, you will be dropping things like "916" and "946" like a veteran before you know it
