Yep, Pain, the dealers are crap in Ireland too. So it must be Europe wide. Is it a company policy? Have to say my dealer is very courteous and I think they genuinely try. But, they just don't seem to want to fix anything.
Is it me, or is this common. You pick up the car after a day at the garage. Collect the keys and sit into it, knowing it hasn't been touched and the problems you arrived with will manifest themselves again as you drive home. Ah, well.
I have experienced the exact same thing with Peugeot and Ford garages in the past. But I do expect a little more from Alfa Romeo.
That said, the progress made with the cars has been incredible. The fact that BMW drivers now have to do battle with us in debates speaks for itself. Lets face it, early 33 drivers would have had very little ammunition to fight back with. Now we're down to defending the couple of rattles that present themselves. These will be gone in the next series of 156/7. Then we won't even have to talk to BMW drivers, or worry about their accusations. We'll be far too high and mighty to bother with that piffle. Ooh, they won't like that.
