Alfa 159 part problem - help!
Bit of a long story, but will try and cut it down...
My 2006 159 2.4 Mjet has been off the road since the 18th Feb. I hit a pothole which caused suspension damage and ALFA have told me that part number 50706504 (drivers side steering knuckle/suspension upright) is on "worldwide back order" The expected arrival date of the part in Italy is the 30th June.. I have been patiently waiting and trying to find anyone who is breaking a 159/brera or spider but nothing as yet. Alfa customer services have been useless, they have kept me informed and been courteous but as the car is out of warranty, they will not take any responsibility. My courtesy car is a Pug 207 and it is likely that I will soon need a prescription for depression just to get me through my daily commute to work..
I thought I would post this on here to see if anyone can help? and also to warn you all not to hit a bloody pothole! It seems possible that Alfa will advise on the 30th June that the part is still not available as they had originally promised delivery at the end of April.
I am gutted to say that it is likely to be my last Alfa having owned and loved four of them.
If anyone thinks they can help, let me know!
