I tend not to bother with dealers; my experience with them over the years is not good. Unfortunately I now see them in the same light as Kwik-Fit.
Although I must admit my new local Alfa dealer (HWM in Walton, Surrey) seem OK. You've still got the typical condescending git behind the desk but the techy was decent enough. He did a bit of work for me a couple of weeks ago, took him nearly one hour and he charged £46 all in.
Very reasonable. They've only been open for a couple of months mind; so give it time and they'll probably descend into the money-grabbing depths of the majority of others.
With reliability will ultimately come monotony.....
