Re: 147 STRANGE NOISE possibly shocks?
I swear by my non-Alfa franchise garage in Gloucester - Cloverleaf Motor Services. Pete, the owner, is Alfa trained and specialises in Alfa. Got all the kit. The closest dealer is 30miles away so he does a fair trade. But, as a source for the caliper kits he tells me they came from the Alfa garage in Worcester (nearest). So, you may get them cheaper elsewhere but I trust this guy so far. Sorry I can't say they are not from a non alfa supplier but I would think that Alfa is the best place for these.
I've just checked my invoice: £53+vat for the pair of front caliper repair kits + fitting ( can't say how much fitting was exactly as there was other labour involved - discs etc).
If you're in the area give Pete a call.
Hope this is helpful.
