Parts availability

What’s parts availability in the US like for 4C.
ie. rear suspension bits, outer body panels.

I’ve not bothered to ask here in Aust. as the local Alfa dealer (Brisbane) doesn’t even keep stock of a simple thermostat (for my current Giulietta). It’s faster and cheaper to source direct from Alfa in the UK

Yeah, you don't want to buy a 4C body panel.
The sills are over US$4,000 a piece! Don't want to know what bigger pieces would cost.
Fortunately, Corvette-like repair techniques will probably save many body pieces from needing replacement.

We finally have aftermarket windshields available for the car (from an OE supplier factory, not junk). Those were a nightmare to get from AR in the past few years.

The suspension is not sophisticated - parts seem readily available - even in the aftermarket (Alfa Workshop offers rear A-arms with a solid bushing rather than the flexi self-steering rubber one from the factory).

Touch wood, I've not needed to buy anything yet. And I wouldn't anticipate dealerships stocking anything more than oil and coolant for the 4C. But I've not heard terrible stories about parts being hard to come by (excepting the OE windscreens direct from Alfa Romeo).

Cheers
(There’s a plan hatching, although it involves considerable amounts of man maths.. so a bit silly)
