Well I was called on Monday to say the car was ready but Alfa Romeo had issued a Technical Bulletin for all spiders an the wanted to keep it until Friday when an Alfa man from ATUK was coming to perform an inspection to see if it needed a part replaced. On Friday I got a call telling me Alfa Man had given it the all clear, no hood mechanism parts needed replacing but did install a software update. I was told the car was ready for collection today. I then got a call back and after final inspection the "maintenance Manager" was not happy with the paintwork and had sent it back to the body-shop.
Now I have no idea what has been going on but I suspect the body-shop disturbed the roof mechanism and it stopped working but they don't want to admit it.
They have promised to deliver it to me my Tuesday at the latest. Fingers crossed.
