Levante, I got a donor car recently here and it's much easier to transport etc.
I'd say be patient - the right one will come along for you....

Does the €475 include shipping? I suspect not....which would make it even more expensive.

I'm sorry for sending you the link, but felt I had to....

Ciaran, I think you're looking at around 1000 which you buy a reasonably decent runner over here.

Levante just wait!!! Please...

you must have mistaken this for Alfa Anonymous...
this is not the place to ask to be talked out of satisfying your addiction

I see by your response on shipping you've already really made up your mind...

Levente, as Rik said, you've come to the wrong place to be talked out of that.

Perhaps you could start off the arguement with Moni asking for both the wheels and the skirts and propose a compromise of just getting the wheels. That way you won't need to spray anything and the wheels will fit into your car for transporting. The skirts I could take or leave but the wheels are

You would. And for less too. But it's the Supersports and the Zender kit that is the issue. Like hen's teeth in the UK. Like a dodo's *** here in Ireland.

If you genuinely don't have the money then stop annoying yourself.

Nah, still alive, just busy... and I forgot to thank you nice people the links and the moral support. Well, I came clean, and I got permission for the wheels, but not the Zender kit (she doesn't like the side skirts). ATM I'm waiting for the seller to send over pictures of the wheels.
The car up the north is nice, but a "bit" more expensive, and since I live in an apartmant block, I can't store the shell here until all the other parts are spoken for.
So, I love you all (incl. Rob!), and make a decision once I saw the pictures.
