Help 2.2 alfa romeo spider...help!

Hoping for some advice that will help make my mind up...please??

I currently drive a 10 plate vauxhall Astra twin-top that has nothing wrong with it other then it leaks occasionally. This weekend i've fallen in love with a bright red 08 plate alfa romeo spider (2.2 limited edition). Not only did it look stunning it drive lovely. It was a director of alfa romeo before and he's had it from new...the only thing stopping me from getting it is peoples perception Alfa Romeo's in general. Iv spent a day looking at reviews some good, some not so and its confusing me more and more.
Are they as expensive to fix and unreliable as people say...would i be doing a silly thing changing from what i have now for a spider. The car is stretching me financially so i wont have the pennies to put it right if it goes wrong.

Any advice welcomed...good or bad

Please help, a very confused wanna be alfa owner
