Any owners South Somerset/East Devon?

Hi,

I'm just in the process of moving to Combe St Nicholas, near Chard. I've promised myself that once the dust settles from the move I'm going to fulfill a bit of a dream of owning an Alfa. It's likely to be a GTV or a 156 V6.

Is there anywhere nearby that's good for servicing? I found a reference to Bensport in Ilminster in when I did a search, but that was quite an old thread and I wasn't sure if they still did Alfas? (Incidentally, their coachbuilt Bentley La Sarthe is stunning! La Sarthe | Bensport Ltd)

On a really random note, I also need to find out if the 156 or GTV would have enough steering lock to navigate the rather torturous route into my new garage, which a 180-degree dogleg from the road. If any local owners fancy lending me the benefit of some Alfa-related wisdom and a quick trial run to see if it's actually possible that would be much appreciated!

Chris

Yes GTV lock is not the best.
I could pop over when you are ready with the GTV and try it for size if you want.
PM me when you are settled in.

Thanks. I'll drop you a line.

Just tried it with my wife's Corolla and it's not the easiest manoeuvre!
