Not exactly a great start to 2013, regardless of all the changes

I visited a main dealer today and inquired about a new Giulietta or maybe a Mito. I need a diesel with the mileage I'm doing and my 166 is now at 263000 miles, costing me a small fortune on petrol. Firstly I was told the Mito is ' not really available' anymore. Then, when I was asking about finance on a new Giulietta he was not interested, rather try and get me to buy one of 3 poverty spec pre-reg cars he had sitting out front, none of which interested me. Dealers just don't seem to care about selling Alfas, the guy today showed absolutely no enthusiasm when I inquired about a new car. I'm not surprised there were zero Alfa sales in January.

these number are quite bad not just because the country is plagued with horrible looking avensis and hyunday things, but also how would be able to buy cheap "pre-owned" Alfas in a few years time?

What the hell did he mean by saying the Mito is not really available?

Good question Gav, I'm actually genuinely interested in a diesel Mito, purely as an economical daily car, it would half my monthly fuel bill and I could insure my girlfriend on it. My 166 needs work to pass an NCT but I think I'll just put her through it. Salesman had no interest in discussing a Mito, said they had one but sent it back, in other words they couldn't sell it. I'll try another dealer and see what the response might be...

It does make you wonder what sort of business will turn away a potential customer in the current climate?
Klapanciusz has a fair point there, as the current crop of 147/156/GTs age there will be fewer used Alfas coming on the market.

Giulietta

I found Waterford Motor Village to be pretty helpful. However, there does seem to be some issue with getting cars ordered in through Alfa Romeo Ireland (or what's left of it), particularly Mitos.

My local FIAT dealer (Lee, Cork) was also more than happy to order a Giulietta for me. Remember that any garage can now order a car from any manufacturer: the days of main-dealer only sales disappeared about ten years ago when the manufacturers' special exemption to the EU free movement of goods laws expired.

No advertising equals no sales, surely one or two of the thousands buying Golfs etc could be persuaded to buy a Giulietta.

156 sw 1.8ts

just to add my bit to this as worked with audi for a while and asked the sales team who were all dribbling over an a5 import that a customer just drove in with why we did not get special spec car and limited edition spec as they do in the uk was told by sales manager that all the executive hi car brands really cant be arsed with the irish market as it is to small a volume to invest in and get screwed over on vrt with hi spec standard cars so don't bother think alfa now going down same road

Wow, they sold nothing in January!?

Could anyone guess at the possible dangers of buying an Alfa and then the brand just pulls out of the country completely? Donkeys years ago my Dad drove a Proton (I know, don't judge, money was tight!) and had to sell it because they upped sticks and left the country.

I guess even if dealerships are gone, there will be dedicated Fiat dealers honoring Alfa warranties

Well TBH Levente , it wont bother me as I wont be buying a new car ever again , I worked out that over my Alfa ownership (1999 >) I've spent 126,000 yoyo's on Alfa's . Looking at a guy in a 96 starlet last night and was wondering which one of us is the fool , I decided it was me !

So Alfa dealers or not my cars (Alfa's) in the future will be second hand and serviced by indies ..

You could look at lots of things in life like that too.... but you have to live little too... if you have the means to do it... then do it!


But it must be difficult to get brand new stock at this stage now I wonder...?

Dermo, the guy in the Starlet was looking at you with lust and sorrow in his heart. You, Sir, in the meantime were driving in a very nice environment, it reduced your blood pressure and improved the your quality of life. So who is the fool then?
I heard a very good phrase... There are problems, and there are expenses. You had expenses, he has problems.

Agree Dave it seems harder to buy a good Alfa in Ireland now. Have been looking for Gt's and 159's or anything that catches my eye but noy=thing has bit me yet . May have to head over the water again to get the spec I want .. Diesal doesnt matter as my mileage will be small ( 2nd car or 3rd if you know what I mean ) so it is a toy TBH

Wouldnt I love it . I wont be around long enough to get one of them at a price that i can afford . Thats what I have tried to do . I have ticked a few boxes in my time . 146 Junior , 147 2 litre fully loaded , 156 Ti ( 2litre possibly only one in Ireland ? ) and my favorite the 166 ! Now all i need is a 159 Ti or a Clover GT .. very few in ireland worth talking about so may have to give a UK one an oirish passport !

Good saying I agree It was only a thought that went through my head .. it didnt stay in there too long . I have never driven any other car that puts a smile on my face like an Alfa ( and I dont care what Alfa it was ) and at my age I have driven most other marques out there . I have ordered an Alfa Zimmer frame in Nouro fouca

Run away with my wife kill my child but dont touch my car

Oh yes! Massage seats would be lethal tho, and not lethal in a good way, more in a "died with a stupid smile on my face" way!
What a car that is tho, even with the funny headlights!
