  5. Jammed boot

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I have to say that my Spider doesn't disappoint with respect to old (ish) Alfa foibles. The electric hood has worked every time I've used it in good weather. Last weekend, though, when it started to rain the electric switch didn't prompt any movement at all, so I had to take a manual approach...
