The owner wants £1k for it.

Time to say goodbye to her - bought from a fellow forum-er in Bristol in 2011. The demands of girlfriend and dog mean a two seater doesn't work for me any longer.

Does anyone know?:thumbup:
I'll search the threads when I have time later this afternoon.
It's frankly a relief being here among people who love Alfa.
