<i>Description: </i> This Quadrifoglio Alfa Romeo Spider was their top-of-the-line model and it is the standard by which all other convertibles are compared. Nice classic vehicle in fresh racing black paint with luxurious taupe leather seating and rich crimson carpeting. Garage kept and mainly driven for a long trips. Its infrequent use is your gain. This thing is almost like new with only 52,000 easy miles on her. The EPA mileage is 21 MPG city and 27 highway, but I can tell you that it gets WAY MORE than that, sometimes as high as 33 city and 39 highway. Oh, and one more thing. I have a reasonably-priced parts supplier that always has everything you would need, new and OEM, and a fair mechanic that specializes in these foreign cars, for your needs in the future.
<p>
<i>Features And Specifications:</i> Robust 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder, fuel-injected engine. New rubber all around. Sport-styled alloy wheels. Power windows. Air conditioning; heating. Sound system includes a Pioneer DEH-P3600 EEQ CD stereo with super-efficient MOSFET 50-watt 4-way amplifier chip, XM-Satelite ready, with removeable face-plate; and Infinity speakers. Full instrumentation, including tachometer. Passenger-assist handles. Upholstered full-leather, reclining front sports bucket seats with head restraints. Deluxe carpeting in interior and trunk. Electric windshield wiper/washer has intermittent feature. European-styled headlights. <p>
<i>Hardtop And Wheels: </i> Several of you Spider experts have asked, so here is the low down. This Quadrifoglio does not come with original hardtop, and the Veloche wheels shown are the ones it is being sold with. Perhaps the replacements, if desired, would be available from Centerline Alpha Products in Colorado, Alfa Parts Exchange in California, or one of the many other <a href=http://autopedia.com/html/HotLinks_AlfaWBLAS.html target="_blank">Alpha sources listed at this link</a>. <p>
<i>Condition: </i> Babied by owners, and very gently used. If you want an economical, very reliable, garage-kept sports car, then this is it. Complete tune up and recent major 50,000 maintenance. New tires as well. BG gasoline additive product used regularly, so you know the fuel system is super clean. Motor is strong and runs like it just rolled out of the factory! Very, very nice and almost like new. Very low miles of less than 52,000. Fresh professional paint on the exterior in October and the body, of course, has no dents or dings. Interior is also well cared for and smoke free. Top is tight and and quiet when closed, but has a small professional repair on the rear clear window. Air conditioning could use a charge before summer. The Everything else works great. On a scale of "A+" (brand new) through "F" (trash), this is a solid "B++" (excellent). This vehicle is my fiancé's, but I fully stand behind this auction listing, just as I would with my own car sale.

Ok, so if you typed 'www.alfabb.com' to get to this site, how the heck do you get it wrong when you're trying to sell your car?

Just annoys me how people can do that sometimes. I'm sure there's many 'alfisti' who feel this way too.

I guess you have to actually look at the symbol on the car and you might figure it out? Maybe some owners are really ignorant.

Cool

And why is one of the pictures out of focus?? Is it that hard to preview your pictures and take another? Always seems to me like they're trying to hide something. Something smells fishy.

I started reading his post and thought, "Oh man is he in for it..." Wasn't the Veloce the "top-of-the-line" model, not the quad? (excuse my spider ignorance...)

Come on fellas she stands behind her fiance's auction just like she would her own. Doesn't that make you feel confident? Alfa spelling is correct in some places but incorrect in others. The whole thing reads like dealer come on to me. That's not fish you smell, it's fried spam!

How did they know I lost my grove? ... I really miss those trees.

Fs: 1988 "ALhpah" Spider

Doesn't $9000.00 seem high for 1988 spider, even if its a " creampuff"??(an
overused term to describe a cars condition) Anyways a "creampuff" is the
name of a piece of pastry, whats that got to do with a car's condition !!
I would not object to a dealer selling a good " Aplhpa Romero" if they were
just straightforward and did their research. A dealer once told me an 1986
"ALPO spYKER' had a 6 cylinder engine and another told me a Milano had
a turbo engine!!!!! Just stupidity and shows a lack of respect. Might as well
sell a "Chivy MALtaboo"

I always thought that when midlife crisis hits, you go looking for a young blond . But I wouldn't know cause I'm not there yet
