I was wondering if anyone could tell me what it should cost to replace the starter in my 1986 spider veloce. (part and labor)

Depending where you get the starter from $100 to $300 for parts and the mechanic will probably charge around an hour and a half for labor at around $100 an hour. So you're looking anywhere from $250 to to $500. If you buy the solenoid and the brushes and do it yourself it's about $50.

Buy the starter from Rockauto or similiar. It's just a Bosch unit; you can even give your local parts guy the Bosch part number and it will be way way cheaper than the 'online' Alfa dealers. Why the hell these guys charge so much for a reman'd starter is pretty goofy.

You can also remove yours and have a local autoelectric shop refurb it. They will bead blast it and paint it too...
