Purchased My First Alfa Spider Today

Hello People

I purchased my first Alfa Spider today and just drove it 250 miles home from Leeds to Brighton. 1999 T in some sort of Pearl Royal Blue (perhaps somebody can tell me what exactly it is !!) with Red Leather.

Great detailed service history and has only done about 5,000 in the past 3 years.

Only one problem with it some wobble and vibration from the Near side front.

Any ideas - Shock Absorber, Suspension Arm or Arms? I got 200 off just in case.

What do you think

Ed

Sounds a nice car.

As for the wobble, I know it sounds silly but have you checked to see if the wheel is correctly tightened and/or balanced.
