Hmm, uh oh, Darren156 has arrived and brought his very own soap box, so here goes,
Why everyone decides to jump on the Team Autolusso bandwagon whenever some poor sod has a gripe with them is beyond me. I myself have purchased something from them in the past and be very pleased with the result, HOWEVER, this guy wasn't, so should be able to say what he feels regarding the ALFA ROMEO door he wanted to buy for his ALFA ROMEO on the ALFA OWNER forum,
Here is a guy, that has contacted Autolusso asking if they have an EXCELLENT condition door for his car, they have said yes they do have several excellent condition doors for his car, he has then gone down there to be greeted with a load of old sh**ty doors that he has to sift through himself,
It sounds awful, no wonder he is annoyed, I would be too.
And for Ned to turn around and say 'What you expecting of a 10 year old door?' is a ridiculous stance to take on the matter. He asked if it was in excellent condition with any marks etc, they said they have several excellent unmarked doors, he goes down and is met with dross.
In my opinion, if you can buy a second hand 1967 Ford Mustang in mint condition, then you should be able to buy a 10 year old silver 156 door in mint condition.
I have owned THREE silver 156's, all of which were in near enough mint condition, all of which were 9+ years old, and as far as I can recall the doors were all spotless.
Not on in my book,
HOWEVER, he did get a free Alfa badge... Worth the trip? Maybe not, but at least he got something for 'nothing'.
