Is 23 Alfa Main Dealer Service Stamps a Record?

My 156 has now got 23 Alfa Main Dealer Service stamps in the book, I just thought it might be some sort of record?

Yes it's definitely a record. It records all the servicing your car has had done. :Headbang:

How odd, considering the number of posters who reckon the main dealers are all krap, and that the only way to look after an Alfa Romeo is to DIY it with bits off fleaby.

To be fair, Alfa Europe did send me a selection of Alfa gifts when I reached a quarter of a million miles.

Put it up in the Classifieds.
Someone must take that off you with that kind of history.
If you dont expect too much for it.

That's the problem, it's probably worth more than most but I still couldn't bear to give it away.

It's like giving away one of the family but with the Giulietta on it's way it definately will be surplus to requirements.

Keep it until it goes bang. Even with the more modern car, you will have a hankering to drive the 156.
