Damian is right... and that Eamonn is some act all together... hes unbelievable when it comes to solving problems, but the lads in the Sweep are fantastic. Had a few good experiences with them for any other newbie who needs some advice on where to go...
When i first got the Alfa (i hadnt a clue about them at all just that it look fookin sexy) but she was awfully slow for a 2.4 as i had just upgraded from a diesel Avensis. I remember the missus Punto could outrun it so i wasnt happy. quick drive from Tramore to the Sweep and the lad told me to go to Eamonn, come to think of it there was a black 166 v6 parked outside, anyone on here? Eamonn hops in, plugs in the dyno and go for a spin. Now on the way he makes me go towards Cork and the reasoning was perfect, he wanted to pick up his lunch from his house
gets his luch gets back in the car and just says open the bonnet, so i do, unplugs (what i now know to be the maf) and says now ****ing floor it! we raced back to the garage, tells me to order it and they will put it as its cheaper for me and then didnt charge me for the test or anything. absolutely fantastic.
Another occasion was that i needed a tensioner for the fanbelt as it was constantly being ripped to bits. went to the Sweep and they had only one for the 2.4 that no one ever wanted, basically junk for them. I went and asked how much and the lad said 202e approx, i was fairly annoyed at the price of it but didnt show it, gave the credit card and he just said "ah eff it you can have it with a 50% discount!"
So to anyone in doubt as to which garage and Waterford is within driving range then take it to those lads and you will honestly leave happy
