Thank you. Some days choosing which to drive may prove challenging.Hi and Welcome...I'm sure there's a dodgy "Alfa" fan hanging around here somewhere that looks very similar to you...
Lovely Spider, which we all know will be treated with love and respect by it's loyal owner, Cheers
I squeaked in under four years between joining and purchasing.You definitely took the scenic route to buying. So what are your impressions?
- There's an extra set of floor mats in the trunk along with the front license plate frame.
- The salesperson did not know about the cubbies behind the seats.
- Nice surprise finding an Abarth badge on the steering wheel. I was expecting Fiat.
After nearly four years I should be expected to understand what you mean, and I wish I did. What plugs and what pinch welds,please?Look underneath on each side and check to see if the rubber plugs are there near the pinch welds. This is supposed to be done during PDI but many have found them missing. Here is the Mazda part no. if you need to order: FD01-56-051
If you peer underneath and you see this hole:After nearly four years I should be expected to understand what you mean, and I wish I did. What plugs and what pinch welds,please?
Thanks for clarifying. How far fore/aft? if plugs aren't installed where should I expect to find them?If you peer underneath and you see this hole:

... it should look like this:
That hole is used during transport. During the pre-delivery inspection, the dealership is supposed to install those rubber plugs (one on each side). Most don't because very few people take pride in their work anymore.
You do know that as a New Member you can now start a new thread in the General Discussion department, don't you ?45-50 psi on all four corners.
I haven't received the customary customer satisfaction survey yet. I usually just delete them. This time I may use it as leverage.
No response yet to my email to the delivery salesperson, who was either ignorant of the complete scope of delivery or was let down by the service department. I'll give him some time as it's Sunday.
Mum and I would appreciate any assistance you can provide to get that North American commonwealth to open its border with the US. Wouldn't want to keep Mum waiting by driving the long way through Ohio and Pennsylvania.Don't forget...You promised your "Mum" a ride in that fancy new car of yours. Cheers
Chipshot has already made a major mod that appears to be unique. Has anyone else cancelled the heritage stripe from a car ordered with it?Sorry for the interruption folk....normally viewing will be resumed as soon as "Chipshot" calms down and gets back to discussing what mods he is considering in General Discussion section. Cheers
Maybe it's just me.... yeah, it is... just me.... but I saw something posted one time of the side front view of a black Spider and they mentioned it looked like the head of a shark. Now everytime I see this profile, that's what I think of, and the AR is grimacing at it (resentful of a younger playmate?). Congrats on the acquisition.
