If you reduce your sample size you will also reduce your access to helpful information about the car (unless of course, you are still floating around on this forum). The more people we have, the more we can assist each other. This forum is still too small, even with global participation.
I reckon it would be a very small splinter group. After around 6 months of ownership I have only ever seen 2 other Spiders on the roads here in the UK. Fiat dealers will tell you sales are going well, but does anyone know how to check how many Spiders have actually been sold/registered in the UK ?
Personnaly I'm happy too read region specific posts from around the world. It let me show different perpective and learn about other 124 versions. For exemple, without this board I would have not learn much about the European version of the Abarth, or known that Azzuro blue Abarth were available to Australian (lucky *******!)
