In my previous post I said I was looking for a reputable garage on the south coast and I was pointed in the direction of ALFA MOTIVE, know known as ALFA LUSSO based in Ferndown industrial park.
ALFA MOTIVE diagnosed the problem straight away and kept me updated with progress all the way through the works, whilst repairing it. The problem with the car was a cam seal leaking (well diagnosed HUGE), but caused by an inexperienced, heavy handed idiot who had fitted a cam belt in feb and decided the only way to remove the cam wheel was with a screw driver, in turn cracking and deforming the alloy were the cam seal sits.
Laurence the owner is a geniunley competant cookie, very easy to deal with and very reasonable...
10/10 for Auto Motive.. and many many thanks to the Alfa owner forumites for helping diagnose the problem and pointing me in the right direction..
