Thumbs Up NEWS FLASH - New Dearlership in Shrewsbury!

A friend mentioned this to me a while ago but I finally saw it for myself yesterday!

Budgens (currently Shrewsbury franchise for Peugeot) are opening an Alfa dealership. Don't know timescale and can't find any publicity about it, but the building is already done (and the showroom, although apparently complete, currently has a number of non-Alfa second hand cars on display!)

Hylton the current authorised service agent in the town still have no official word about when they will lose the servicing & parts side of things!

The location is between Budgens' existing site and the new Honda showroom on Featherbed lane.

This does now mean that I will soon be able to drool over new Alfas much more easily - but I still have no intention of paying main dealer prices for servicing, regardless of the level of service and efficiency of the operation. I will be continuing to travel the 35 miles or so to Allitallia for my servicing.

60% of the time it works everytime.

We could take it in turns to pretend to be interested in the latest Spyder or Brera!

After a couple of weeks we'll have to use fake beards and wigs but it could be fun!

Re: NEWS FLASH - New Dearlership in Shrewsbury!

Depends on how many holidays he intends taking next year and whether they happen to coincide with any catestrophic failures/breakdowns I might experience! I really think he needs to work on his priorities.

On the bright side, he must see Red Alfas all the time so I can imagine it's a bit of a treat to work on such a special (albeit occasionally problematic) car as mine.
