Hi All,

New on and driving a 147 Q2 and like it so much I think that I need to try a V6. I'm looking at Spiders at the moment and was wondering what I could expect from the Spider that the 147 diesel doesn't deliver apart from the roof down and engine note?

The 916 has completely different handling characteristics compared to a 147 (I have a 147 1.6 and a 916 Spider V6).
Almost no body roll at all, steering is quite a bit stiffer and follows road imperfections a lot more (I have Eibach springs).

I have failed to generate any understeer with the 916 yet (maybe I'm not brave enough) - you really have to try one.
Once you take a seat and start the engine you will be completely sold - trust me.

I agree, the 147 runs pretty flat. The diesel is a great unit too. Had a couple of V6s from Cologne in the 80s which really were classic engines and am looking forward to hearing how Alfa do it. Is there any point getting a V8??

Well the 147 has to stay I'm happy to say but just sold my Land Cruiser. Anyone know where the black or grey PH3 Spiders are?
