Alfa GTV 3.0 24v

New GTV owner saying hello....

Hi All,

today I just flew to Southampton to buy a beautiful '98 Alfa GTV 3.0 V6 in metallic navy blue with tan leather interior. 64k miles and two owner car. It is in superb condition. I drove it back circa 290 miles to Harrogate and it never missed a beat, I just love every nut and bolt of this car. There are a few things I would like to sort, I'd like it servicing too and I want to take it to the best local independent specialist around. So for Harrogate / Leeds Alfa owners - where's that?

Cheers, Jamie.

Hi Jamie,

Congrats on your new purchase, I bet you are buzzing after a drive home like that can't help with an indie up your way but I am sure someone will point you in the right direction very soon.

Steve.

Yep, i got the train to Kent and then drove home. A good introduction to a new car.

Glad you like it so much, and welcome.

Will post some better pics soon, once she's all washed and valeted. Tomorrow have decided she's off to Tewit Park Auto Services for a service and a health check, and they are just up the road from me in Harrogate. I drove around there tonight and parked up outside was a 155 and a GT so all bodes well. It is such a great looking car - I'm hooked and I'm never selling. Cheers Jamie.

Tewit Park seem fine to me. I used them a couple of years back when I lived in Knaresborough. Nothing major to do on my car, but there was a genuine interest in all things Alfa, which bodes well.

I live 30 minutes further up the A19 now so tend to use F.A.S.T. in Stockton.

Also, I used Turin Motors in Leeds about 10 years back. Again, all fine there too.

Cheers,

Another Jamie.
