Alfa GT Coupe V6

Veloces G.T V6 update 2

in february of this year i bought a beautiful ***** GT coupe 3.2 litre V6 from Veloces and an auto promotions two year warranty. The sales team were incredibly helpful and as i live almost 400 miles away from Veloces they made sure i knew exactly what i was buying and i spoke to them on the phone regularly. The sales team really did an excellant job. I took a train to London and collected my car, at the time i also bought the above mentioned warranty to cover me for 2 years. My wife thought i was crazy, but who listens to the wife!!
Unfortunately within a week my car developed problems, the coil pack on the third cylinder failed but as i was insured this was quickly corrected and off i drove, happy again!
Within two days my car was once again imobile. The E.C.U had failed. Thank the great lord of ****** for my insurance warranty! Off went my little car to Benfield in Newcastle, (who by the way were superb) but unfortunately because i live so far away from London Veloces couldnt really help me out much and i was without transport for almost 3 weeks until my lovely insurance policy once again kicked in and i was given a courtesty car by *****.
As my car is no longer the same as when i bought it from Veloces they have very kindly agreed to pay to have the remap done again, to cover my car hire costs and to pay for my diagnostic charges. Hurrah!
I am incredibly relieved i bought the insurance policy although i would never say, "told you so" to my wife as she thought i was stupid buying a car from some where so far from home in the first place because it made things incredibly difficult when i needed a hire car, or the repairs done on it and i dread to think what my phone bill is! Happy driving! Johnny.
