Don't know of any non-franchised specialists in the area but County Motors in Carlisle have been very good to me. Might be worth calling and speaking to Neil, the workshop manager.

Angel tuning apparently have an associated garage in Ayrshire specialising in Alfa's.

Someone on here reccomended it, but I cant recall the name of the set up.

Mclennans in Edinburgh is where my 147 is headed come cambelt time in a few weeks.
