Got our Spider LE!!

Well, the wife's Spider LE that is. Despite all the supply problems faced by the dealers (docks on strike, big PDI queue, hence no supply from Alfa), Gary at HR Owen came through for us and got the car to us when it was needed (the day we got back from honeymoon and last day they could supply in time for my wife to get to work on monday!)

Here's some pics everyone.

Also Surrey meet people took some lovely shots, they are in the London and South East forums, here's a couple:

Thanks very much to Gary at HR Owen.

Re: Got our Spider LE!!

It's running really well, but there is a huge difference between it's brand new 2.2 engine and my 2007 Brera 2.2 with 9000 miles on it. My 2007 engine actually feels like the new spider engine with a turbo added on. That's how much difference there is!!

Absolutely definitely! The 2.2s are really tight when new...

It's really tricky for me to do the Ace these days as I work from home which is along way from the Ace, plus my band practices every other thursday night - including next thursday! It costs us 35 a session and all the other time slots are booked! I'll see what I can do...

Thanks! Umm... actually we didn't choose any of it except the black - it's an LE so you just choose black red or white - the other bits are set combos!
