New owner Alfa Romeo Spider 2.0 TS


Just bought an Alfa Romeo Spider 2.0 TS almost by accident, we were looking for a Summer car to replace our 2.5 Subaru Legacy, as we already have another 4WD car for the Winter. We had short-listed the Mercedes SLK and BMW Z3.

We went to a garage to look at a BMW Z3 but my disabled partner could not get in or out of it with the roof up. She happened to see an Alfa Romeo parked at the back of the car lot with peeling paintwork and asked if she could try that one. She found this one easy to get in and out of, it had low mileage with full history and bills to prove that no expense had been spared, totalling thousands of pounds.

We were offered it at such a low price to take the paintwork into account that we could not in our right minds refuse, so here I am! It was much lower than our budget so we can easily afford a full respray in the colour we want. I am still in shock as never even knew Alfa did a convertible, much less considered one.

Now waiting for the car to arrive

Thanks for the welcomes

Can't wait to start driving Alf, reckon he will look great after the respray. Want to keep it to an Alfa colour if I can (OH's decision), to keep as original as possible.
