Alfa GT 3.2

I can recommend Graham Eddy Motori in Penzance - 01736 366206 - Graham Eddy Motori - Alfa Romeo and Italian Car Specialist, Long Rock, Cornwall

OK, it's about an hour from St. Austell but he's very well known in Cornwall & has an excellent reputation.

Give him a ring - he's got a courtesy car available & can probably work something out if bringing your car all the way to Penaznce is a problem.

Bit further south, Illogan near Redruth.

My 156 has been with Graham a couple of times, last service, bearing, wishbones, driveshaft, all done quickly and professionally. He's a top bloke too!

My car's been down to Graham for cambelt change, rpm sensor and a few other bits. The guy is an Alfa Guru, can't fault his work, his prices are reasonable (because he can do everything with his eyes closed so it's done in no time at all) and the coffee is excellent. I got the train back to St.Austell and he even gave me a lift into Penzance to the station. Top bloke.

I'd highly recommend him. Been down a couple of times and the work was excellent at a good price.

After having taken my 156 to a couple of garages in Falmouth to do what I thought would be minor work and not having been satisfied there is now nowhere else I'd go even for a little job. The way I look at it I'd rather pay 10 in fuel to get there in back than have someone else tamper with the car!

I wouldn't take my GTA anywhere else than Graham Eddy. Couldn't recommend him highly enough.

that's really good to know, been looking for a bit of info on graham, as for work prices, value for money etc, not heard a bad thing..... i'm only in helston and have a GTV that needs some serious guru love.... running rich and can't find why, so once it's through the MoT, it's going there to be set right and a cambelt change.... as they say... for everything else there's mastercard!
