Couple a 156 Questions

Hello all - new to the site.

got a 156 JTD sportwagon as a import from trade sales nearly a year ago and am very happy with it. Just a few questions to you all.

1) 1st years service - best at dealer (i live in Hertfordshire so Amersham is the nearest) or Independant specialist? ( ive heard that Alfarama in Stanmore is very good)

2) one problem i have is around the leather on the steering wheel, its flaking off ! It seems like the 1st "layer" is coming away (like worn away) from the actual rest of the covering - has anyone seen/experienced this at all ?. Its happened on the gear knob too. do you think i can get this through warranty or are they going to quote wear and tear on me.

Many thanks

Leather flaking sounds like wear and tear to me. Anyway - it's character - no car is going to stay new the moment you drive it off the forcourt.
Servicing - don't know. I'm just going back to my local dealer.

wear and tear Im afraid. In fact alfa will argue wear and tear if the chasis split in two. You really have to fight your corner with them.

Ive used Alfarama a couple of times. Thoroughly nice bunch of guys. Id recommend them.

I`m in Herts too.Still using franchised dealers until the warranty expires.Perrys of Amersham have been OK so far.
