  1. Differences in two Spiders

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Due to a fortunate set of circumstances I've acquired a second spider (not a V6 šŸ˜¢ ) I was expecting the cars to feel identical or at least very similar but they're not. Mine is a 98 TS and the 2nd is a 01 TS. The 01 has lighter steering, engine is smoother and quieter and the suspension is less...
  2. ESC for Alfa Spiders

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Can anyone tell me when ESC Electronic Stability Control (or whatever other name it goes under) was made standard for the 939 Spiders? Or was it never used for this series 2006 to 2011 or so?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider

Not sure if he/she means only Ph1...

  6. My Spider has spiders

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Ive got a damned spider in the car, really fine webs and they are everywhere, this bugger works his nuts off at night and I cant find him. I learnt a trick with chestnuts or conkers and I use them in my conservatory and they work a treat but of course neither are in big supply right now. Anyone...
  7. 4C Spiders are the worth it?

    South Africa
    Hi, I saw a few 4C Spiders that are selling at R900k to R1mil now, they are practically new. I just wanted to ask all the Alfisti here, are they worth it? I read on the 4C Forum, 2017 will be the last year of production and the Spider versions are considerable better than the early 2015 coupes...

  11. Interested in Spiders, but which one?

    General Alfa Discussion
    I'm looking at buying a Spider soon, the ones that interest me are the 3.0 916/3.2 916 or 3.2 Q4 946. They seem to be not that far off on price from each other, even though some are around 2000 and the newer being 2006/7 models. Has anyone had experience of driving the two models? Why would...
  12. Spiders - spare wheel or not?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    We will be taking the Spider to Spain via France in the summer and as this will be our first journey where we will need gear for 15 days or so. I will use a ''boot bag'' for some of our stuff but am thinking of removing the space saver so that we can fit a suit case in the boot. I was just...
  13. JTDM Spiders on eBay

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, I've owned 916 v6 spiders for 15 years, but thinking I should be more sensible and get a newer JTDM spider for commuting (I've done over 250k miles in various spiders in that time) What should I look out for? I've seen threads on here suggesting suspension bushes could be a something to...

  16. Spiders love my wing mirrors!

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    They obviously have great taste in cars but mine is a GTV not a spider! Can anyone recomend a product that will keep spiders out of wing mirrors?
