New 2018 4C Spider in Cincinnati

Hey everybody. Just took delivery yesterday after the longest 4 weeks. Bought from Nebraska and they mailed me the wrong contract and couldnt get me the corrected one until I would be back from my 2 week vacation.

Had it shipped via a single car enclosed carrier to get it quicker and try to minimize damage as I didnt want to drive it back 700+ miles and undoubtedly mess up the paint on the front end.

I bought the car sight unseen which had me a bit hesitant but I figured it's a new car at an Alfa/Maserati dealer, so I shouldnt have anything to worry about. A positive surprise is that it has the carbon fiber halo option, even though it's not on the window sticker and saves me $1200 buying it through madness. In the pictures I saw it looked like the standard plastic. Also comes with a car cover which isnt on the sticker either.

Drove it to work today and had multiple people honking and waving at me, and one guy filming the car.

Layout is:

Rosso Competizione tricoat
Racing leather and microfiber seats
Spider convenience group
Carbon fiber interior trim
Spider track package 3
Carbon fiber mirrors
Alpine premium stereo
Dark 5 hole wheels
Red calipers

Also the previously mentioned CF halo and car cover.

Planned cosmetic upgrades include getting xpel and ceramic coating, possibly the CF spoiler and various color pieces inside since it's unfortunately almost solid black and not tobacco. Also want to upgrade to a flip out screen and rear backup camera as the visibility is truly awful.

Welcome to the 4C family. Hope to see you around. I have heard about (not yet seen) a couple of new 4C's in the area in the past 2 weeks.

My wife saw one on the interstate (71 or 275 I think) on Saturday about 1:30. Was that you?

I just took delivery yesterday, so not me. But I plan on daily driving it as much as I can before having to put it away for the winter. Hope to see others around with this car. I initially went in to Alfa to get a Guilia to replace my Optima. I saw the red tricoat and madreperla in the showroom and just had to have this car.

Congrats, beautiful car! I live in central OH but go to Cincy on occasion, I'll PM you the next time I'm in the area and maybe we can meet up.

My 2018 Spider also came with a car cover that wasn't on the sticker so I'm thinking they all did.

Nice, congratulations! I’m in Cincinnati too, but have yet to see another 4C on the road. Enjoy the car in this nice weather!
