2015 4C Spider Alfa Rosso
$60,000
8800 miles
DFW area


I made a mistake and bought a second 4C that I did not need last August. I am the third owner. It took me until the end of December to get the car licensed. It came from an area that did not require emissions testing. I tried three different ECUs to no avail and had to face up to the fact that I needed to remove the Capristo 100 cell downpipe which is included with the car. Most of the miles I put on the car were putting miles on the car before various emissions tests and gong to the shop 50+ miles away for alignment, oil change and a new right side roof latch. I have driven the car 250 miles in 2022.

My 4C Coupe would not get up my driveway so I had been storing it elsewhere. I do a lot of driving with it at the track, but, I did not take the spider to the track. I raised the 4C Coupe a fraction of an inch and now in one direction going almost sideways I can get up the driveway.

Although I removed the Capristo 100 cell downpipe and switched from EC intake version 2 to version 1 this car sounds really good.

While some people refrain from upgrades when buying a previously owned car, I personally think these are some nice additions and this is a really good deal.
I hope someone picks this up fast and continues to give the car some TLC.
