    Looking for a nice Alfa 4c Spider. '15 -'16. Hoping to pay mid $40s. Thanks!

    If you go for a high mileage low option example you can probably get there.

    Although I would argue you may as well get something very nice for only several K more. The options and lower miles are good value for money so to speak.

    I've been seeing 2015 sub 10K miles with a few options going in the 45K range.

    Cheapest spider I see on autotrader is 50K with over 13K miles.



    There is an 18 listed but that looks like a typo..especially considering it is a new car.

    Coupe should he doable.

    Do you have links for the mid 40's Spiders with under 10K?

    Mike ward ward has one listed at 49k, have them down to 47k currently.

    Listings are a bit misleading, as I've been seeing them go for 3-5k off asking

    This car right:

    They have not updated autotrader. 50K on their website but maybe you got confirmation from them they are lowering it?

    Someone I know was looking at that one. Definitely one of the cheapest. Over 10K miles missing some of the expensive options and had the aftermarket center exhaust that has a bit of a reputation for cracking (reasonably cheap to fix).

    Worth looking at to see if the condition merits the price.

    Yep. Drove it earlier this week, seems sorted.

    The difference between 9k and 11k miles is negligible to me, as I plan on racking up a whole lot more.

    For me the math was essentially:

    1. How much would I charge a stranger to drive my car 5K miles ish...
    +
    2. The value if getting the additional options I wanted
    +
    3. The value of any warranty duration mismatch

    For some 2 and 3 obviously situationally dependant. 1 may be a bigger or smaller number depending on car condition and number of owners.

    On the current year model there is an Akrapovic exhaust, however previous to that expensive (and heavy) option, the center exit exhausts are aftermarket.

    The Mike Ward car looks like a steal if the condition is what you say. Since you saw it live it must be relatively local. Why not take that one?

    I think some of these want to buy ads should be retitled : “want to buy, but only if I can steal it”.
