What you all think of these; i reckon they look real sexy

But the only thing thats putting me off them is the depresiation of Alfa's in general

Any thoughts on them?

They came near the bottom for reliability and after sales service in Top Gear's survey IIRC. Also, the slash across the waistline makes me imagine that the top of the car would slide off if you braked hard...

i would go for the coupe over the spider mate

you wont regret it when its a boiling hot day and you can put the air con on when stuck in traffic. sooo much nicer than having the roof down

if you wanna pose on the other hand........

If your convertable is really bling it will have air con as well as no roof

I like the look of the spider, but have heard some bad stories about how reliable they are

Plus Fiat Coupe's need a Cam belt change every 60,000 miles which involves the engine being taken out and costs around 1000

Good lad read as many reviews as you can, of the web or mags, before buying anything as they are usual very good at pointing out things they may sway your buying
