Update: 24/03/12

I have had the OnBoard Diagnostics (OBD) checked today and can confirm that the car is running as per the workshop manual parameters with NO errors logged in the ECU.

I replaced the rear screen in March as the original was opaque and had developed a crack in the cold weather. 

I am using this car as a daily driver so the mileage will continue to increase (slowly)!


Hi, this is the listing for my much beloved '99 916 Spider.  

I have owned the car since July 2011. The Spider is my third Alfa (previously owned a 145 Cloverleaf and a GT Blackline). You will be hard pushed to find a better example of a Phase 2 916 Spider, anywhere.

I am selling the car due to a need for a vehicle with rear seats and the capacity to carry luggage. 

It is the Alfa Red with tan leather upholstery and the Lusso pack (leather, power windows, CD multi-changer, a/c etc). The engine is the 2.0 twin spark, which returns around 380-400 miles to the tank on mixed use. 

The paintwork on the car is excellent for a car of this age. The car was completely resprayed by the previous owner (2008).

There are a couple small dents on the car (RHS rear quarter, passenger door) and two tiny stone chips on the bonnet. 

The engine / electrics / hood / suspension / running gear all operate perfectly with no errors or malfunctions. 

I have had the ECU checked with the Fiat ECUScan diagnostic software and all systems are running within the manufacturer parameters with no logged errors. If you have the OBD kit you are welcome to check the car yourself. 

There are 2x keys (both red). (If you want the brown 'master key', these can be made at any locksmith - seriously). 

The timing belts were changed in July 2010 at 56000 miles. They are next due in July 2013 / 86000 miles. 

I have included the service history below, this should give you an idea of the care and attention that has been lavished on this car. 

  • 22/3/99 Pre- delivery service
  • 08/05/00 12000m Service point - done with 8120 miles on clock
  • 06/06/01 24000m service point - done with 14381 miles on clock
  • It is likely the car was then traded in because the new dealer obtained a Mileage Check certificate 22/02/02 as an Approved used Alfa
  • 29/04/02 36000m serivce point - done with 16828 miles on clock
  • 30/04/02 the car was purchased by new owner
  • 28/02/03 48000m service point - done with 22752 miles on clock - I have a bill for that service
  • 17/04/04 60000m service point - done with 27432 miles on clock
  • 05/04/05 70000m service point - done with 28684 miles on clock

It is clear that sometime around this point the car changed ownership.

  • 09/04/05 84000m service point - done with 34533 miles on clock - I have a bill for that service showing different owner. 

Sometime around this point the car changed ownership and the documentation is missing. 

    • 15/10/08 - previous owner bought car with 54000m on clock at trade sale from renault dealer - was first NI-based owner of car, car came with  MOT certificate issued in NI 18/6/08 indicating 50718 at time of MOT, and car tax procured in Woking on 27/06/08 (i.e. after MOT here in NI)
    • 21/10/08 - full respray to same orginal colour done on car to correct faded paintwork.
    • 20/06/09 - MOT'd with 56055m on clock, no advisories
    • 20/06/10 - MOT'd with 56989 on clock, no advisories
    • 23/07/10 - 96000m service point - done with 56984 miles on clock - includes all belts and variator.
    • 15/02/11 - Airflow meter and RPM sensor sending unit replaced
    • 24/06/11 - NS front wheel bearing changed and rear suspension checked - no advisories.

    My ownership began at this point...

    • 23/07/11 - Oil and filter changed.
    • 24/07/11 - car valeted and treated to 'clay bar' cleaning + waxing (by me). 
    • 04/08/11 - Hood cleaned and treated with waterproofing agent (by me).
    • 18/11/11 - Bonnet replaced and resprayed following a 'fender bender' at a petrol station (car backed into Spider whilst it was parked). 
    • 20/12/11 - 2x rear tyres replaced.
    • January '12 - Clutch slave cylinder replaced.
    • March '12 - Rear screen replaced with new.

    If you have any questions, ask away or even better - come and view!  

    I remain confident that the first person who views (with cash in their pocket), will buy this car. 

    Please no tyre kickers / time wasters. 

    The car is in SE London.
