Nice one Ronan, good to see someone is laughing in the face of the credit crunch! Very nice car by the way.

Re: New Car.......

It wasn't really that weak a moment.......I've been looking for a while. I wanted one without the electric roof and without leather if possible.......herselfs requests.

Re: New Car.......

Picked this up last Saturday......it's a beautiful machine.

Dud battery/alternator though, I had to get a push after getting off the ferry, changed the battery from the GTV into it and no problems since though so fingers crossed !

Re: New Car.......

What you can do is experiment with the windows up or down. I used to have an MX5 and the draft would go away if you left the drivers window right up and the passenger window half down and that would reduce all the draft.

How do you find the handling compared to the V6? People say the V6 is more nose heavy Is that right ? or dont notice it

I'll try and get some pics up this week.

The trip was nerve racking to say the least, I couldn't stop as the bloody thing wouldn't start again. I swapped the batteries between the GTV and the Spider on Monday and neither have faltered since......work that one out

I'm sure you do ! The Spider will be free for the trip to the UK in the Summer if someone wants to take it......on their own insurance mind.
