147 jtdm 12000 mile service - should I go Alfa dealer or independent??
after a year and 9000 TROUBLE FREE miles my 57 plate 147jtdm is up for it's 12000 mile service - it's actually done 17000 miles now.
I bought it as an ex-demonstrator from Wilsons Alfa in Essex, and I can honestly say I've enjoyed every drive in it, and it still looks neat and new.
Wilsons Alfa sent me a note to prompt to book it in, but I'm just wondering what the Alfisti reckon about the pros and cons going to an independent Alfa garage with this service? Or is it still under warranty? What difference does this make?
Wilsons have quoted £490, is this a fair amount? I'd like to spend less if I can, obviously.
Sorry if these seem obvious questions, only this is my first "new-ish" car, used to drive 20 year old classics before, so I've never had to deal with this situation before.
Thanks for all advice!
