Was this last Saturday 19th Nov ? I've just searched the Telegraph archives and failed to find it. Do you have a link ?

Hi,

I purchased the Telegraph on Sat and Sunday and didn't see anything about the +2 Spyder ? Have I missed something ?
The only thing I saw was about the new MX5.

Nick :cry:

Hi

The article was on the front page of the Saturday Telegraph motoring. Massive picture of the red Spyder car. They did like it a lot, although they were being kind, and overlooked the crashworthiness and lack of safety devices such as headrests! The MX5 was inside front I think.

Had another search of the Telegraph site this evening, can't find the article. :(

Any idea if it is available, if so, link ?

In addition to the link added above, the following may work better over the long term -

I do have a copy of the Telegraph Motoring section spare so if anyone would like it please let me have your address by PM - the first to reply gets it!

Regarding the article for those that have read it, what are forum member's views - positive, negative or indifferent?

I've grabbed it and converted it to a single pdf file in case it falls off the telegraphs website into a pay for archive

Well Folks, it seems the article was there all the time, but the headline "Why buy an MX -5 ?" sent me off on the wrong scent. (ouch !)
Funny the Telegraph's search didn't respond to Spyder though.

I do not doubt all Plus 2 owners will be chuffed to read it, the outright sale price of a new Plus 2 at £30,000 might perk up valuations a bit.
