Re: South African ALFA Dealers
NO NO NO... in CT the ONLY guy good enough is GEORGE Le'Abate...with ANY Alfa...he opened his shop last year when I left CT.
Call him on...0799962716...tell him Lance reccomended you!!!
Also do yourself a favour and get in touch with the cape alfa club, thus you won't have to search for makkie's and parts etc. These guys helped me alot!!!
I'd reccomend that for everyone on here who's replying to this thread...instead of feeling out dealerships join an Alfa club, the members will soon show you the ropes on who to trust and who not to...there are tons of good Alfa machies but also tons of shady ones...so too some are good at one aspect of the car and some with other aspects of the car...
Just remember the basics of ALFA ROMEO's!!!
stay away from SELESPEED - it WILL give you problems if it hasn't already
Always use FULLY SYNTHETIC OIL!
ALWAYS check your oil levels esp 147's!!!
ALWAYS ask for service history when buying an ALFA!
Join an ALFA CLUB TODAY to save you some missery!!!
CHECK that the cambelt service has been done and when it needs to be done...not only the cambelt but the whole KITT...variators etc.etc.
Stay away from ALFISSIMO...
There are tons of good ppl out there...here are some:
Here's a start....
