You could try Jamie @ Alfaworkshop in Royston. They are doing a special deal on cambelts at the moment, if you book before Christmas.

You're probably thinking of Autolusso near Dunstable.

Might be a bit of a drive for you but Fiat & Alfa Specialists in Bury have always done a good job for me, and provided a loan car (usually a 156) for no charge.

We want your money

We have just moved to a new bigger better workshop, we have had no phones for a week and I have not been as on top of the e-mails as I should have been so sorry if it was us you emailed and I have not come back to you

All the best

Ned

That's all a very sad story in the alleged present economic climate: one would have thought people would be delighted to have work offered to them rather than to have to advertise for it.
Maybe not surprising, as the position is the same up here in Norfolk. Maybe Alfa garages in particular making too much money from existing customers.......

yes, im not the sort of person to keep on to people, if they want my money, and in the case of alfa servicing, its a lot of money, i aint gonna throw it in thier laps, if they want it, theyve gotta work for it, if you read jezzas story in the current top gear magazine, he has a very similar philosophy to me
