Don't know much about Black & White, but they have been Alfa dealers for a while. If they weren't much good Alfa would have probably pulled their concessions when they have a major clear out a couple of years back.

Take it for a spin and see how they treat you ... and how the car sounds and handles. Check the service history especially cam belts, etc. Turn off the radio and listen for knocks, squeaks, etc. Check tyres for odd wear, warning lights, wear and tear on interior. Check the carpets aren't damp. Check for excess exhaust smoke ... hit the load pedal hard once or twice

If in doubt, get an independent AA/RAC check.

cheers, Gary

Black and White are an independent, not an Alfa dealer. I have bought an Alfa from both B&W and a main dealer and I have to say the better service was by far from B&W.

I would say that B&W cars not not the cheapest, but there is normally a reason for this. As far as I know they an excellent reputation. I would definitely buy from there again. Check them out here (Independent garage Recommendations) and search for black
