My old alternator was only charging around 13VDC when hot so I replaced it with a 75A upgrade alternator I bought on e-bay. It's charging 14.5VDC at the battery now but the battery idiot light remains on. Is this just a nuisance or should I be concerned? My car is an '88 Spider Veloce.

I think you might have a loose wire somewhere, I've never had a problem with an alternator, starters yes, is the light always on(start, run, highway driving)? Go back and check all the wires, you just might find a loose wire.
(if this works don't quote me, I've never worked on one of these)
