Western Alfa.

3rd scottish italian car day in a row I have given them my address asking for a giulietta and Mito brochure and 3rd year in a row they haven't sent me one!!!

Come on guys. You are the only dealer contact remotley near Aberdeen. You might not think I am going to buy a car anytime soon but often circumstances change, money becomes available and a new alfa becomes a possibility.

I did find them impossible to buy from at 159 and MiTo time and went South of the border.

They had improved by my last visit in 2011 though, but I didnt buy an Alfa that time.

Ransoman. Give me a call on 01738 444555 asap so that I can get your details. I was not "working" on the Western stand at SICD, I was however there on the day in my capacity as Rep on here. As many of you know, I am part of the sales team in Perth.

Apologies that your enquiry was not dealt with more swiftly. Phone me and it will be in the right hands.

Cheers
Graham Bruce

I still use Glasgow for servicing chief.

We need a big car as well though, so now only run one Alfa, the MiTo

You've both been unfortunate as i can't praise them highly enough. We've bought 3 Alfas off them now and had brilliant service each time.

Now that 'oor Graham' is on the case you're in great hands

In all honesty:

Edinburgh Sales - 1 out of 10 on the MiTo, 4 out of 10 on 159.
Edinburgh Service - 10 out of 10
Glasgow Sales - 7 out of 10 (one guy far better than the other at following up
Glasgow Service - 7 out of 10 (Graham is good, but too many jobs not properly finished requiring second visit)

Since 2003 we have bought a 156, a 147, two 159's and a MiTo, all brand new, so should be recognised as a real purchaser!

Western missed out to David Whitton Piccadilly Alfa Romeo in Yorkshire on the 159's and MiTo's as they are prepared to discuss a deal and return enquiries...a bit far to travel for service though.

I dont mess about though, I gave up after 2 calls to Mercedes Benz Glasgow (the sales guy was good, but as it was a high value his manager got involved and messed it up) and got my S212 from Liverpool, who delivered the vehicle that Glasgow said they couldnt supply, and they offered a far better discount.

Like I said, Perth is where it's at. Give us a try when the time comes

Thanks for getting in touch Graham, I have replied to your pm with my info.

The bottom line is that if you are prepared to buy down south you can save up to 2k plus. Each time I have changed cars I`started at Western but ended up going South because Western were just too expensive

Rachel and John in the Edinburgh service dept are great though.
