Another Alfa...

Hi All

Newbie first post...I have a 156 2.5 V6 Sportswagon which I've had for 8 years now. It's now used by my wife for school run etc but I still get to drive it at weekends for family trips and I still think it's brilliant car especially that amazing V6. Sadly it's days are looking numbered as my wife wants something bigger.

Realising this and not wanting to be without an Alfa, I've now changed my daily car to a 916 Spider 3.2 V6 which is definitely fast enough but not as sorted on the open road. The bigger V6 is totally addictive and its definitely a great looking car (I reckon I prefer the big Hannibal Lecter grille although most don't of course) with a nice interior but it just doesn't seem to inspire confidence like the 156 when driving for fun...feels a bit cumbersome and heavy. Anyway early days - I will check if there are any suggestions for improvements in the technical section...

I know a 916 GTV would have been a better drivers car but I do like a soft top!

As there don't seem to be too many of these 916 3.2 Spiders knocking around (not sure I've ever seen another one in the flesh) would be interested to know how many other owners there are on this site?
