From the research ive done, the later biturbos have much better build and reliability, if im not mistaken the 430 has the 2.8V6 which is supposed to be a very robust engine. They require alfa like maintenance but parts are obviously more expensive and more sparse, just get a biturbo pro to chek it out.

Current: 89' Milano Gold(sold)
Next: 164 S

Be warned though, Alfas can have a strange effect on owners; ‘Alfaholic’ a recognised condition among car enthusiasts

ok i have done some research online, and found only 2 good reviews about the 430, then i did some more research and found lots of problems on biturbos, but there repeatedly talk about the earlier models before 87, this car is a 90, dose anyone know a forum or any info on these cars??

the fuse box, front bearings, and a oil and water mix have been resolved in the later models, biturbos after 87. any info on an 1989 to 1990 model will be helpful thanks

I have an 87 Biturbo Spyder since new. No complaints at all. Do a search on this forum and you'll find some pics. You can also try the Ferrarichat.com forum as they have a Maserati section where you will find some info on the Biturbo's. Good Luck!
