Alfa 159 service pack?


Does anyone know if the 159 in the UK comes with the 3 year free servicing deal that is available in Ireland
(see BV_SessionID=@@@@1856755791.1140478323@@@@&BV_Engi neID=cccgaddhdhhhemfcefecejgdfiidgnm.0&modelKey=14 0?).
My local dealer couldn't give me an answer to this!

Re: Alfa 159 service pack?

I was in the Parts dept of my local dealer a week or so ago and the guy behind the counter told me they might be upping that Service pack to 4yrs to make it even more attractive as they don't seem to be selling that well.

If you're in Belfast why don't you just import one from the south?

Re: Alfa 159 service pack?

Knowing Alfa dealers, their idea of a "free" service will amount to nothing more than a stamp in the book. I wonder if a 159 can do 60k miles on the same oil as it left the factory with

Re: Alfa 159 service pack?

Hello Mark, there was going to be a service pack but they dropped the idea. as it turns out they have set the servicing at 18 month/ 18K miles intervals so in three years it would only have an oil change anyway and then be due another. I asked the UK dealer about this, he said they've improved the engine, the truth is whilst they have improved the engines the main reason is its more appealing to lease companies so they can keep there costs down and if the lease companies get involved happy days for Alfa's market share. If you import a car from southern ireland as we did before I worked here, the car will have to be registered in southern ireland to get the service pack they offer which will mean you will have to pay the VRT ( Vehicle Registration Tax approx 20% on top of the VAT). I hope this makes sense. Ben.

Re: Alfa 159 service pack?


Thanks for the clarification. I also got word from the dealer today that they wont be offering any "service pack". The additional 20VRT on the southern car isn't worth it. The 18K service interval is a definite boost, especially since I'll be putting up ~25K miles a year. I just hope that the 159 is as reliable as my old 156 was (now thats probably cursed it from the start!)

Alfa Romeo Netherlands are going to drop the free servicing deal in April (with the introduction of the Sportwagon). The free service will be on the option list.

The prices will drop 1k
