Hi Drivers71 and all alfa people.
Just put my Alfa through a MOT over the weekend - passed with no problems. Today, I've just picked it up from its 108K service at Alfa Auto Care. I found them to be good honest people who didn't try to rip me off. In fact I forgot my chequebook and wallet at home and he just said, "No problem, drop the money off when your passing". Wow!
Let me qualify my recommendation. Since the weekend my Alfa's been running a little unevenly and hesitating, I thougt it might be a slipping clutch. Then yesterday afternoon after a 15 mile run it became very lumpy, the engine control system light started to flicker, turned off and then stayed on. I phoned the Alfa Dealer in Dudley, who told me they'd plug it into their diagnostic machine and let me know the fault for £42. The 108K service would be a another approx £270 and any rectification would be extra. YIKES!!!
I decided to stick with Alfa Auto Services, they identified the cause of the uneven/lumpy running - a faulty spark plug. They serviced may Alfa, replaced all the plugs and let me drive off without paying. Highly recommended. If the Forum allows, I'll post their telephone number.
I'm going to drive back there now to pay them.
My humble 1.6 drives even better now!
