New 147 owner in Johannesburg

greetings from sunny (and rainy) south africa...

i am taking delivery of my new (but actually 2nd hand) 147 2.0 selespeed. car is 10 years old but in fanstastic shape... salesman said something about an old lady that drove it once a week to the shops or something. seriously in great shape, genuinely looks2 years old and only done 87,000km's.

i wondered if the fellow south african regulars could direct to the best shops for servicing and parts etc? with the car beign a few years old, i took out an extended warranty through MiWay which gets me basic coverage should anything go wrong (fingers crossed).

need to take it for an evaluation for insurance and will get someone to look it over quickly to see if there are any tell-tale signs of neglect or problems. i was thinking of going to the alfa garage in bedfordview as i am in the area and wanted to know what they are like for price and service or if there was anywhere else i should be looking?

Hi and welcome

Nice to see more South Africans joining this forum...

If you see a new Red Alfa Romeo Giulietta fly past you flash your lights or give it a hoot
