So my Bella is out of here in a couple of weeks :-(
Gutted tbh. It has been an absolute pleasure to drive and has been extremely reliable throughout its 90,000 miles life with me. It hasn't missed a single beat and other than the usual service items, it has only had a front bush fitted. It's a testament to Alfa Romeo. TBH, my experience with Benfield at Newcastle was so good, that I'd have been happy even if it had been as unreliable as my previous Passat.... They bent over backwards to help me every time I visited.
The best thing though, by far, is knowing that all my colleagues in their german black and grey coal boxes, who said "you don't want an Alfa they break" all know, that I was right and they were wrong :-D
This was my 6th Alfa Romeo and it will not be my last.
Thanks Alfa Romeo for doing what you've always done...... Made me happy :-D
