Re: Alfa Specialist needed (possibly)
My local Alfa approved place is 2 miles away. I could walk home if I needed to. The prices I was quoted for my last service were similar to those you mention. £300 at the dealer vs £250 at the independant Specialist.
However, inspite of the obvious convenience factor, I chose to use a recommended specialist 35m away because they were exactly that - recommended! The cost saving was an added bonus.
IMO, personal endorsement for these things is as important as cost, particularly given the notorious service given by some dealers/official service agents.
