Just registered here, as I've just treated myself to a '96 Spider TS.

I had an Alfa 33 many years ago and loved everything about it, and graduated to the Spider as a weekend treat. I hope there are plenty of Spider owners out there, as I'm bound to have a few questions!

In fact, I have one already....I need to insure it and wondered whether there are any schemes or companies I should be aware of when I get quotes? I understand I can do it as a classic, but don't know who to go to. I would hugely appreciate any pointers.

Thanks for now, and hope to hear from some of you.

Good to be here as an owner!

Hi again,
Thanks for all the suggestions. I tried a few, including the moneysupermarket types, and ended up with Admiral, who are only £350 comp. with business use. Not bad eh?

I've been looking around the site, and have now uploaded some pictures. How do I get a picture by my name when I post?

Its good to know there are people like you out there to help us newbie posters and owners!

Cheers for now.

Hi...could i just ask what were the specs on the 33 you owned before the spider (very hot by the way)? did you have any major hassles with it?
Cheers

Hi, it was a few years ago now, but was a beautiful red Alfa 33 1.5 Cloverleaf. black sports interior, alloys, etc.

Considering it was only a 1500cc it went like a rocket, and the boxer engine was very reliable. I only changed as a very kind young lady in her dad's van drove a bit too fast and remodelled the front end for me.

18 months and much arguing later, I got the insurance cheque. By then I had a mondeo 2ltr glx.

Anyhow, I never had any great problems with the car, and loved owning it. I can't actually remember having to spend anything on it!

If you are thinking of getting one, hope it goes well.

Cheers!
