  4. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Evening all! I spotted this beautiful-looking GTV V6 on eBay - fresh import from Japan. It seems like great value for a 50k mile car in red with mostly the 'right' spec. Does anyone here have experience owning and running an imported GTV? As far as I can tell they're mechanically identical...
