Better late than never!

Like a few others on here, I have been adding a few posts for a bit now without introducing myself. I have bought a 1999 V 2.0 TS Spider Lusso.

It seems to have a few of the usual Spider problems (most notably, the rear bushes need doing and I've just put a DTR exhaust on it) but I am enjoying the AR experience despite the (current) running costs

Re: Better late than never!

Hi Spider Charlie,

I would hope the running costs wouldn't be too bad going forward for you.
I ran a 2.0L t-spark (albeit a 156) for 5 years, and the running costs were very reasonable.

Cheers,
TB

I have heard that running costs for a 156 are a lot more than a 155 or 145/146 running with the same type of engine, so I hope a Spider is no more again!

Welcome!

(When can we see some pics?)

Re: Better late than never!

Running costs? Don't talk to me about running costs.... I've got some scary bills hidden away from the missus...

Welcome on board!
