New Spider 916 Owner saying hi!

Hi All,

Just wanted to say hi as i have been watching this great forum and have just come home from having picked up a 1998 Spider Phase 1 after viewing it last week.

It has had a respray and it looks stunning. It's got black leather seats from a GTV, a manual roof (i'm very happy with this) and colour-coded lower sills and wing mirrors.

Unfortunately, it overheated as i got home and looking at many of the threads, i think it may be the radiator as it little grilles feel like pulp! So i think that will be job number rad and thermostat.

The car is currently hidden away a few blocks from my house as it's a birthday gift for my wife who is turning 30 on March 9th .... she has always loved this car and eventhough it wasn't my cup of tea, i think i've just fallen in love having driven it....the lines on this car are fabulous!

Anyway, i am an Audi A8 man myself and thought that my 4.2 V8 would not easily be parked up for what i though would be a lesser car but i have really underestimated this little beauty and so we look to enjoy this for some time to come.

Great to meet everyone and hope to be able to contribute to the forum.
