I'd just like to thank all the forum members for the info on the Alfa subsidy.
Phoned the local dealer to arrange my 147's 3 year service. conversation went like this -
me: Hi, I would like a quote for the 3 year service on my 147.
dealer: what's the reg no? - told him - yeah, that'll be £337.13
dealer: alfa have recommended the cambelt be changed at 36,000 miles instead of 72,000
me: how much is that?
dealer: another £300, total for everything is £637.13
- long pause -
me: £637.13 for both the service and the cambelt change?
me: I've been reading on the alfa owners forum that alfa are offering a subsidy, is that right?
dealer: em - hold on a moment!
- another long pause -
dealer: Yes, alfa are offering a £220 subsidy!
So I've booked it in for the 19th! - I'm sure if I hadn't seen the posts on the forum I wouldn't have been offered the subsidy - or am I just being paranoid?
