Hate em, I've avoided these people for years both with Cars & Bikes,particularly there over rated & overpriced priced workshops, prefering to either do it myself or use a small Independent.
Checked my car this morning, No soddin Water in the wash bottle & it needed a ONE LITRE of OIL
& I only picked it up yesterday having covered less than 30 miles.
Had a nice little chat with my Local Independant Alfa Specialist this morning (2 miles away
Keighley W.Yorks), didn't realise he was still there after 20 odd years,( Difficult to find unless your local ) had a chat for half an hour, gave me a couple of good tips, some of which I've already read here anyway, but I shall be heading there on monday for some fresh Agip Synthetic & an Oil filter, & as there has been so much talk recently about cam belts, I ask when & how much, not going to publish it here all I'll say was it the lowest I've heard, & do it at 36,000, fine with me thats another 16,000 miles before its due, gives me time to save up wink
Got a strange noise when the cars reversing, mainly up any incline, theres plenty of them in theses parts, sounds like either a dry joint/bearing or an over active power steering pump, carnt quite pin it down, so he's asked me to bring it down & he'll have a look for FREE, then I'm going to give the dealer a nice plesent phone call & get the ***** to fund the repair if its needed.
