<strong>I know a guy who lives down the road from me & has been waiting on a New Steering Wheel for his 147 (Has really bad stitching!).
Its been about 90 days or so now and he is starting to get a bit ****ed off waiting!
When ever he rings his dealer they say it will be here tomorrow but so far tomorrow has not come!</strong><hr /></blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">That's terrible. I just wouldn't accept this - and would be jumping up and down at my dealer until I got ACTION. In fact in a situation like this I think I'd drive down to my dealer, find a 147 with a stearing wheel I liked and get them to fit that to my car. I wouldn't leave until it was sorted or they gave me a car with a steering wheel which was satisfactory.
Luckily Alfa service here is very very good and I doubt I'd ever get treated like this. I also have built up a couple of contacts at Ateco NZ which may be useful in the future....save them for a rainy day. wink
I always get a courtesy car when my 147 is in - only twice so far - which is very handy. Fiat Punto Sporting's unfortunately - but a brand new one with 400km on the clock isn't all bad.
