Re: alfa parts in ireland?

To be honest you'll be as well off ordering online from the UK. Try shop4parts.

Re: alfa parts in ireland?

Gerry at Ti Autos usually can get stuff fairly quickly, are you looking for something obscure or just cheapest source?

Re: alfa parts in ireland?

Any alfa dealer or garage should be able to source the parts for you. Theres a guy in louth who is an authorised garage and he was able to get me a clutch and timing kit for the 33 within a week.

my local dealer is goo dbut expensive, about 40% more than if i source them myself. I can source them in england, but shippings a pain. If there was an Irish center id use it as an excuse for a drive

Give Gerry a ring and ask him how much he would charge, he is a decent bloke and I am sure he wouldn't fleece you....

Re: alfa parts in ireland?

Hi folks :]
I was driving around for one hour and couldn't find TI AUTOS..
maps saying Gerrys garage is on 1 Cowper st.

Can anybody tell me where exactly it is? Which gate, door or colour of building and when I stand back to the church, is that on my right hand side or LH, etc..

Added picture. Is that there? There wasn't any garage around

Regards..

Re: alfa parts in ireland?

Mike, blink and you'll miss Gerrys...

By your map you were just 20yds from Gerrys. When you turn off Aughrim St onto Cowper St, Ti Autos is about 50yds on the left hand side down a little alley way

See pic attached

Try Kevin McBride, his details are on the alfaireland.ie website.

His prices are super competitive, cheaper than the UK in most cases.

Re: alfa parts in ireland?

I've used alfaworkshop (The Alfa Workshop, independent specialist Alfa Romeo garage and web resource) with no problems. Proper Alfa OEM parts and works out cheaper than the dealers in ireland.
For example a v6 spark plug at the dealer is €40, while about £10 + VAT and shipping from these guys.
