Good Parts Response from Dealer

Had the misfortune of losing the black plastic trim around nearside fog light on my Brera. Placed order with Budgens of Shrewsbury late afternoon on the 10th January, replacement part turned up this morning - by post to my home. As this is an obscure bit of trim I didn't have high hopes of a quick response, but was pleasantly surprised! Shame about the £28.00 price though! but full marks to Budgens who I have found to be very helpful and to Alfa parts.

Re: Good Parts Response from Dealer

You did well.

I just waited 9 weeks for some interior parts for my GT when the baboon working on my car laid the drivers seat on its side to replace the cap where the seat hinges. Net result it needs new trim around the bottom of the seat and replacement seat height adjust arm .

Oh yeah and for good measure 2 gouges on the kick plate

That's pretty good going by anyones standard. Go in for one job and create 3 more

Voo, DIY isnt about saving money, its about protecting your baby. baboons should be in a zoo, not playing with your seats.

There wasn't any DIY going on. The work being done was warranty work, so now its going back again to repair the damage caused.

I'm dreading it TBH
