Alfa spider

Wave Hi from Wivenhoe in Essex

Hi all, After a very long search and having a 40th birthday (mid life crisis) I finally brought a T reg 2.0 Phase 2 spider in silver. Travelled 200 mile round trip to collect her from a Alfa specialist (nut) near Brighton. Just had a replacement engine/ new clutch / cam belt plus full check over with new M O T. I fell in love with the spider straight away, the sound from the twin spark engine sealed it!! Standard apart from a performance air filter that really adds to the sound. Bearing in mind its 15 years old it doesn't have a single rattle or bang and drives like a couple of year old car. I'm a cab driver and even after a full days driving I cant wait to jump in the spider ( dry/sunny days with roof down) Being 6 foot tall and a lump I do look like a tool driving it but I really don't care!! In time would like to change the wheels as feel they look far too small only being 16in especially on the back plus upgrade the front wings and if safe get the bhp up a little. Thank you for reading, now going to look at posts/photos for ideas!! Craig
