I clicked on Modification parts... but to be honest i've spent quite a bit on servicing parts recently!

If you can better the likes of Jamie Porter etc for service items, then you'd have me as a customer straight away...

Quality of service, buying experience and prices are all important for return custom, we cannot be the cheapest on everything online that I am sure of due to the structure of the initial business, however I can assure you of first class service and guaranteed stock/delivery on certain items. Perhaps even a loyality system so you can be rewarded for your purchases

We are still heavily tweaking. There is so much we need to do still, butrest assured our pricing and service standards will be a top priority!
If we say it's been dispatched, you know it will arrive!

sounds very promising

Despite my earlier post I wouldn't mind paying slightly more for a good service and to help the club grow.

I've voted for the last three, only because Mr PG has trade accounts to get the first two as cheap as you'll get them

Its always worth checking the first two no harm in pricing for you and seeing what we can do especially with genuine parts as we buy in bulk

Likewise - for an Alfetta GTV 6 !

Seriously though for us Classic owners finding parts for an older Alfa can be difficult. Would there be any mileage in the AO shop trying to locate Classic Parts or acting as a " go between " for these Parts ?

I know that Members can always advertise in the Classifieds here on AO but, and without wishing to re open any debate on the Classifieds, I think a lot of people still don't use or look at the Classifieds as much as they did before the change.

Just a thought.
