Welcome. The good news for you is that you are dealing with a buyer's market. Most of us owners are getting on in years, so Spiders come to market that are well documented and cared for over long periods. AROC monthly magazine has classifieds, there are cars for sale here on the BB. And Bring A Trailer sales reflect the market values. Just saw that Hemmings is going to compete with an auction platform too.
I think you should define your budget and look for what is offered. I would not limit. S2 to S4. The differences are not that big. For the same $$, an S3 Spider will be in better condition, include a service history with years of routine maintenance at way over the current selling price.
When you start shopping you will also decide what colors please you and which don't. In the 80's Alfa found the paint suppliers color charts. S2 spiders are red, red, white, black, yellow, green, did I include red? Oh yeah. For S3 there are teal, a nice blue, crema, burgundy plus black and red.
