The web page says I need to introduce myself, so here it goes:
my name is Fabricio and I have a 156 GTA (2002, Alfa red) since last January. I had a 146 Ti for 8 years (in Argentina) and I know the brand, so when I heard here in UK that Alfa's were "crap" I was surprised . Anyway, after checking most of the brands (it took me more than 4 months
) I decided to buy a 156 (original idea was a 2.5 V6, but when I took a test with the GTA... well, you know).
I was looking for information about Alfa services in UK and a friend told me about Alfaowner; it is amazing the amount of information you can find here!. What I was searching was a recommended place to perform a 60k service (I had many problems with official garages, that charges you a bunch of money and do nothing), and the nearest I found here was WAD in Wolverhampton (I live in Abingdon). Any other recommended place near here?.
Also, I read in some posts that, because it is a major service (cam belt was never changed), it is better to do another things like replacing water pump. What other thinks would be worth doing?
