Very good independent garage experience

I have been using this forum for around a month now and I thought I would share my recentexperience of an Alfa specialist (apologies if this isn't the correct part of the forum).

Just got my 147 selespeed back today from Bearings AF in Bradford and the car is running like new. I had done;

New cambelt and balance belt
New variator
New water pump
Full oil drain and replace with Selenia 20K
New pollen filters
New oil filter
New air filter
Replaced Paraflu (red)

On top of this, when I dropped the car off on Monday they discovered that the cover for the cambelt had previously been cracked and it had been bodged. I had to get a new part delivered direct from Alfa, which took 2 days from Italy. In spite of this, the car was in and out within 4 days. The total bill ws 672 inclusive of VAT.

I had the work done as a preventative measure rather than wait for the belt to go (I may be new to Alfa's, but I have read wnough to know that this is essential). I just wanted to give credit where credit is due and let other Alfa owners know that if you need an Indie in West Yorkshire, I would highly recommend Bearings AF.
