I have given it some serious thought and I definitely prefer raccoons to monkeys...
In other news, much like our children or pets, we all want Alfas to go to a good home where they will be loved and cherished like we love and cherish our own. We would all like to spend more time and money to take proper care of our cars and as well intentioned and devoted as we may be to the marque, we are not always resourceful enough to avoid cutting the odd corner. So if the car has been bought by an Alfa specialist, it will presumably be sold to someone looking for an Alfa. If it is sold for more money, the buyer may treat it as worth more money. At least it is promised new tyres prior to sale rather than ending up in a ditch or broken up for spares, or worse, modified by a chav. Maybe the extra pennies in Italia Auto Parts pocket means that they can offer preferable rates to a loyal customer who loves their car but is struggling to pay for a repair. Or maybe one day Italia Auto Parts will supply the one bit you need to fix your car because they stayed in business, because they were successful despite overwhelming competition from dull Ford, GM and assorted euroboxes. The consequences of this moral quandary are anything but 'black and white'. They are far reaching and incalculable so perhaps we should think twice before appointing ourselves as judge, jury and executioner upon somebodies business. Perhaps we should all stick together rather than bicker over a car that we didn't really want and, lets face it, if you live outside of West Mids it was never practical anyway. If you do want it, feel free to try to negotiate Italia Auto Parts down to what you think the car is worth after they give it the once over.
Perspective people, perspective and Alfa love!
