Would love a V6 Spider but sadly there are A) None for sale in my state (about the closest one is some 800km away) and B) They are all well too expensive for myself.V6 24V spiders are very smooth , worth the wait.
Yea Alfa's, especially GTV's and Spider's fetch a high price here as they never really sold many and those who do have good examples don't let go of them very easily.That's pretty pricy for a V6...the Uk market is much cheaper despite there not being that many 3.0 24V's about. £3-4k could see you in a 50,000 mile example. If you have driven a V6 GTV vs a TS you would see the difference. I've had one from new in 2001 and even now its power delivery feels smoother than my GTA 3.2. As a student live the soft top life with a 2L TS and use the saving on gas to save for something special.
Import duty would indeed kill you. They love taxing the crap out of any imported vehicles sadly.Time for a road trip to Aus in the Spider....ready market and fly home. I bet there is a catch, like massive import duties. I looked at driving a 100k Porsche 928 to Aus in 1987 to sell at the end, import duties, dubious petrol quality plus the cost of spares killed that idea off.
