I have had the same experience, crazy high prices. I have never bought from him.

I guess only the market decides what will and will not be paid.

What is strange to me is that this seller has at least 2 other names on this board:

"Azzura" and "alfaspider1991" and "alfaspider1988"

I always, wonder, why someone needs 4 user names?

What I do find amusing is when he uses one of his user names to ask another one of his user names if he has a part?

Whatever.

1991 Spider Veloce - Red on Tan - Rosa Bionda
1987 Spider Quadrifoglio - Red on Grey - Rosa - Sold

Vintre - you're right, I forgot to mention that - yes, he uses "Azzura", "Pininfarina", and "Alfaspider 1991" as names, and does post on his own threads.

I'd imagine, if the seller has stuck around this long, that he's a reputable person in actually sending the part. I just take offense to his style.

There's a lot more honest and reputable sellers out there - there's even some that will give you a small part or services (as I have done) to keep these cars alive. I realize that can't always be the case, but still. It just has bugged me enough to say something.

$1125 for a set of old rims? It seems to me as if the vulture has torn the legs off an old, but still living animal in hopes to make a large profit on the black market.

Same sad experience, I asked him for the two plastic parts on the top of the doors pannels, and the price he asked me with shipping (315 $) was higher than new ones..... moreover, he turned down Paypal, he asked for an unsecurised payment (Western Union).
He doesn't help anyone, he only wants to make profit !
Recently I helped someone on this forum by sending the vinyl top manual for free. But no thanks from him...

CHEAPSKATE DOGMA

Junk collector cheapskates , and both these two above members are well known cheapskates ,
The Alfa spiders are valuable cars ,
The parts are costly new ,
And the spider are going up in price yearly ,
Try to avoid the above members they offer ridiculous prices for valuable parts ,
They are just home garage junkies ,
With no money,
And think they know everything look at there posts,
All home garage stuff,
Funny how they approach working on spider,,

Thank you,
