I've done it plenty of times on other vehicles but thought that with it being covered on my warranty I'd let them take care of it. I think many garages see an Alfa and rub their grubby hands together and pluck a quote out of the ether and double it.

Autolusso will do it for £100 including coolant replacement. As it's got some other work to do also, I thought I'd let them deal with it.

Work done. Thermostat replaced at £100 from Autolusso. Problem solved. Temp gauge raises and falls properly now.
