Excellent indie garage
My 147 is on 43K, and I was shopping around for quotes on the cambelt change,+ other things if the price was right. I had heard of a very old skool alfa independent in Northampton who has been recommended by serveral people. They even service and restore the SZ's and Alfetta's so they know their stuff.
I know I will be keeping the car for about 2-3 years, so I have some spare cash lying around, thought I may as well deal with the 60K and 72K services in one go, then just give it oil changes and minor servcing for the rest of the time I have it. This is what I wanted to be done:
2- Aux belt+tensioners
4- All 8 plugs repalced with the platinum NGK's
5- Oil and filter change
6- Air filter
Wanna know the price, take a look at the email he sent me:
I appreciate the opportunity to gain your business.
As below, Cambelt, tensioners, pulleys, aux belt, aux tensioners and
variator. The whole thing! In addition to NGK plugs, oil and filter
change, and air filter.
£642.00 + VAT
This price does includes ALL!! parts (that also means the correct Selenia
oil!!!!!!!! we would never use anything diffrent unless directed to!)
Please give me a call if you have any questions.
I don't know about you but that seems bloody excellent, escpecially when compared to the quote from Alfa Northampton.
They even give you wireless laptop connections for you while you wait! (don't know if this is true, I mailed him from work and he must have seen my Sun Microsystems signature).
My car is going in within the month. Anybody wanna know who it is??? Am I allowed to say names or shoudl I just give some clues.
