What a bottomless pit of money my Spider really is:cry:

Knocking from the front = new lower arm needed (last done 3yrs/15k miles ago, although with non-OE parts I suspect).

Rattling from exhaust = Ragazzon rear section collapsed internally. 5yrs/40k miles old, so in a way I cant grumble too much, but they are supposed to last a lifetime.

Farty noise from the front = dead manifold and gasket. Re-furbished manifold and new gaskets ordered.

Ive ordered a new Biscione 128x80 rear section from Alfisti.net (€312) - comes with a muffler at least :lol: Im hoping that will quieten her down a bit along with the new fanimold.

Last money spent was in November - €400 for new CV joints and €200 a week earlier on brakes.

God I hope it gets through the rest of year without too much €€€ needed.
