Alfa Romeo - garage - Glasgow (ish)

Hi,

I've noticed I'm loosing power in low revs until I reach over 2/3k in revs. Has anyone any knowledge of a decent garage to take my 147 Collezione too in the Glasgow area?

Would rather get it checked by someone who has a decent history of alfa's for obvious reasons....

Any help would be great, cheers

Ps the engine control fault warning has now came on! My battery was run flat a few weeks ago was wondering if this may have had an impact somewhere?

I just booked my 159 into CM East Kilbride next week for a timing belt and water pump. They offered me a courtesy car without even being prompted. already and I've not even been there yet.

I also had a great chat with Stuart Mclennan on the phone tonight, he was really helpful and took a good amount of time out to explain the ins and outs of the EGR, DPF and remapping topic. So in my books both of these garages are refreshingly helpful and just what you're looking for if you need a proper garage for your beloved Bella.

It was interesting, a bit like patting your head and rubbing your stomach at the same time.

Seeing as your further East, perhaps try McLennans if CM are struggling with it?

In defence of CM though, these can be difficult to cure, my 156 and a Clio had leaky driveshafts from new despite several replacements!
