Spider Technical FAQ Digest - Version 2

:angel: RIP Tifosi - 1966-2013 :angel:

The FAQ is dedicated to Darren Gates = Tifosi who was so important to this forum


We have developed a Spider (much of it is also helpful to the GTV) specific FAQ for the Forum. There are many excellent threads that have answered the most common and some not so common problems. Searching the forums can be difficult due to the huge amount of information found. Browsing is still very informative for those new to the BB or to the Spider. All of those that have added to the FAQ have certainly helped many Alfa Spider Owners and maybe some of the other models too!! Keep up the good work.

This is a group effort and if you see a good thread, go ahead and put a link to it in THIS thread by hitting reply and adding it to the end. Don't be shy about adding any items!!! I will add it to the first index page when I do maintenance.
