What's most notable about the Spider aren’t its sharp lines or charismatic engines. Or even the attention to detail in the interior. After all these are bread-and-butter to Alfa Romeo. The biggest surprise is what you can expect after you’ve bought the car - and for a change it's good news. For once passion is starting to translate into decent service from dealers - many new, upmarket, sites have been appointed while those with bad records have gone.
There's now better performance when it comes to reliability and customer service that’s more fitting for buyers spending BMW and Audi money on a car. It means for the first time, it’s possible to recommend an Alfa on all its merits – not just those that are skin deep.
