Alfa Romeo Specialists - Yorkshire

The warranty on my 147 expires early next year and I considering taking it to an AR Specialist (Non Franchise) to be serviced etc. Firstly is this a good idea and secondly does anyone know of any specialists in the Yorkshire area? Does anyone have any idea of the savings (if any) that can be made?

My local independant is 25-30 an hour, which is less than half main dealer times. So a 4 hour 48,000 mile service or a 4 hour cam belt/tensioner/variator swap will cost you half the price for labour. Parts cost is probably about the same.
Some engine management issues can be solved by mobile guys. We had a VW Golf GTi at work which failed its MOT on emissions - they were off the clock. A guy came in a van with a lap top, and "talked to it" and reset all the fault codes.
Job done 70.
But, unless it is a real up to date Alfa only guy, they won't be able to cope with Selespeed software problems etc.....

Have a look at

There's at least two listed, and one of them is in York so should be nice and close.
