Called my local Alfa dealer, quoted £550 for service...tha last one was over £700 inc cam belt.
Went to Halfords £330 for major service instead, they did the steering rack, front wishbone, discs and pads all round and a new rear spring. £1150 total. (If I had that lot done at Alfa it would have been closer to £3000)
This is the first time I have had ANY jobs completed apart from normal servicing, all with main Alfa dealer. The only thing was a blown rear number plate bulb at about 80K!
Very very happy with car, now done 123500 miles, I have always checked the oil level and NEVER had to top up the oil and at the last MOT the Tester said the emissions were very low and pointed to that lack of any soot in the exhaust.
The Afla has been the most reliable car I have ever known and I have had 3 Subaru's, Audis, Range Rovers & I expect to keep for another 3 yrs.
2 Faults have now arrived, rear parking sensor stopped working and the front passenger window wont work but I can hear the relay clicking...only found out when using a French toll booth....have read on the forum due to lack of use so will take off pannel and check connectors and a little lube.
