    Got bored over the weekend so I scanned a bunch of photos from my 1989 Frankfurt Motorshow press pack. And no, I didn't go myself! :p I picked this up off of eBay, however, I do remember walking into a showroom and seeing all but the SZ on display. These were the flavours available in 1989:

  8. 1989 Spider S3 opening quarterlights

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    or rather, Spider S3 NOT opening quarterlights... Both are stuck shut. The driver's side (LHD remember) latch has now come off when I REALLY tried to open the glass and the passenger side is no better. Question: Can I replace the glass on both sides? or is this as I anticipate it's going to...

  12. 1989 Alfa Romeo Spider Veloce gearstick sloppy

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I have just acquired this car, and one reason I got it very cheap was because the previous owner couldn't get into first and second gear. I discovered that the gearstick is very loose, and will rotate in its socket to the left, meaning that the gearstick fouled on the console, and he couldn't...
  13. Backfiring - 1989 Spider S3

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I'm getting a loud backfire from my Spider when on the overrun. Just like a loud gunshot. I am aware that leaks in the exhaust can cause this, but the system is new and I cannot find any leaks. I am experiencing a bit of rough running when on part throttle at low engine speeds - almost as if it...
  14. 1989 S3 Spider injector equivalent?

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I think I may have a problem with one or more of the injectors on my US import Series 3 Spider which has the Bosch L-Jetronic system fitted as standard. Does anyone have a cross reference of injectors that are the same? Highwood and ClassicAlfa don't stock them, and it seems silly to chase...
  15. 1989 S3 Spider injector problem?

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I think I may have an injector problem with my Spider. The car is not quite running on all four cylinders and I have had a plug foul up on one of the cylinders a couple of times, so I'm wondering if I am getting a slight leak from one of the injectors. When running, the car sounds rich, as if...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider

  19. Bosch L-Jetronic on 1989 Spider

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I'm nearing my Spider engine rebuild, and before trying to start the car, I wish to get rid of the 3 year old fuel. I thought that by leaving off the fuel supply pipe from the injection rail and switching on the ignition, the pump would operate and pump my old petrol out to enable me to put...
