Hi from Wexford...

Just a quick hello to all you guys and girls in the forum.

A QUESTION :

Ill be converting to Alfa Romeo for the first time EVER and particularly the Giulietta in November, but i have an issue.

Can someone recommend a authorised dealership in Republic of Ireland that has had experience in buying a Alfa from the dealership and particularly how good the customer service was and the level of professional by the dealer.

Your recommendations would be so appreciated.

Hope you can help.....

Many many thanks.....

Not too far away then.

it may seem like a strange suggestion but I'd recommend Lee garage in St Terrace Cork City. The guys in the workshop know their stuff & a reguarly sent away on training, espiecally when new models have come out.

I personally have no experience of buying a car from Donohoes of Enniscorthy, despite them been only 20 miles away. & I've only ever bought form their stores on one occasion. The Lee garage on the other hand know of me well.

Hey red156ti,

Yep went down to Donohoes and they said that there not selling Alfas from there anymore only servicing and the main dealer is in Dublin.
Popped up to Tractamotors Dublin and they were very helpful and professional, have pick my car and will be ordering it at the end of september....
Will keep in mind the guys in Cork as you have had a great rapore with them, its always good to know that.

They don't have a choice but to go on the mandatory training courses if they want to keep their Alfa Approved Service Agent status

I've been a passenger in a 1.4 giulietta and was impressed, so I'd say the 2litre will be a right flyer

My parents will be getting the 170 diesel aswell, they've also decided on Etna Black and some nice extras... the twin exhaust looks fab i think.
