Boxing Servicing in Derby

Hi guys

moved to the area about a year ago and just wondred if anyone knew of decent service place in the area, its in need of a service but not sure of beechedales as last time they had i wsnt sure about the customer care element. Tho the bloke in the parts dept is brill as he fitted my new wipers withouthaving to be asked.

euro cars are quoting £599 for the 48k service and im hoping there is someone around that can do it cheaper. So any help would be great.

Tali

matey you need to get yourself to Alfa Tecnico at Huthwaite about 20/30 minutes from Derby straight up the A38, servicing for around half that price, and is you need it they'll give you a free courtesy car while yours is in as well, and i can personally vouch for their work quality they're one of the best in the area,

here is their site, they have their service prices on there too http://www.alfatecnico.co.uk/ (unfortunately the site seems to be experiencing problems at the moment but try it later or tomorrow.

you won't be disappointed what Lewis doesn't know about Alfa's isn't worth knowing, and the free car is very convinient as well a nice bonus

£700 seems a lot to respray one side, there's a body shop in Eastwooid where i live, when i crashed my 156 in the icey snow last year smashed all the bumper number plate light and fog light surround he repaired and repainted all the front corner for £300 including replacment fog light surround numberplate mount and the number plate, labour paint everything, and once he was done you couldn't even tell when the repair had been done and the bumpedr was in 3 pieces on the corner
