500 !

Well i guess it could refer to the new little Fiat which IMHO looks fantastic and but for the Junior being just around the corner I reckon I would have signed up for one by now, The 500 I'm referring to is the limited production of the 8c and quite frankly with it being sold out before the first car ran off the production line, I can't see them simply letting further sales go to waste so....

An 8ca ? (I know it's already carbon fibre but Iím sure they could make it lighter somehow if required to pacify the original 500 exclusive owners)

Then I'm totally stumped, I can't think of any other way to improve on what seems to be probably one of the best Alfa's produced.

I believe the convertibles may be sold out too Damn maybe Iíll be rich in years to come, failing that I'd happily hack out all my dysfunctional organs and flog them to some rich prince in Dubai if thatís what it took to get my paws on one of these beauties.

Re: 500 !

Yeah yeah I know what you mean but some things are beyond the grasp of us mere mortals. At least I have a Brera, and we have a dream of my fiancee replacing her Mini with a Spider in two years, then we will be a Brera Spider family!!

Better than that, my fiancee says that as she will be transporting the dog (which we don't have yet) and we might have a baby by then, she'd probably use the Brera as it is more practical! So I'd get the Spider as a run about!

Dream dream dream

Well even if the worst comes to the worst she'd probably go for a 159SW

That's a nice situation to be in, when your "worst case scenario" is driving a 159SW

There is talk of an 8c zagato after the spider, it will have a new body.

Well quite!! It's good all round, I am a very very lucky boy! (Fraser, I didn't mean it in the way you might have thought I did!)

Mind you, I did have a bit of a scare as she is keen on Panzerwagons of the Audi persuasion, but was totally put off by the ridiculous pricing of Audis when shown the results of specing an A3 on their configurator! She's used to the spec of the Brera/Spider/159 now and will not accept having to pay £800 for bluetooth and ipod connections, or £1,700 for nice alloys - sensible girl!
