My 1st Spider was an import from Germany - Full UK spec though! and the manual was German! It was new when I picked it up from the importers in London and I was the 1st Registered user (in fact I still am the only registered user!) - It was much cheaper - £22k against list price of £28k, although Main Dealers were discounting down to around £25.5 in 2001.After booking my car (gtv v6) in for some work the dealers told me it was imported from germany. It surprised me a bit, was this normal for alfas back then or something? I have a german handbook and service book but the intsrument cluster on my car is in metric MPH.
