Dubai Alfa pictures

I have already posted this on the Pictures forum. Why not post them on the UAE forum too.

https://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/just-...f-my-cars.html

Would be happy to see all UAE cars and meet all the active members.

Yeah, definitely not who we thought it was, actually the original guy cancelled on the order so it was snapped up before he could even reconsider it's an 8C afterall... I think our buddy R.. is happy with his Maserati MC12 and its probably faster louder and more expensive...

For Regional Reps.. need to get through to Happy Man and Alfaowner for that bro..


p.s. The parts are here... EB Spares came through as usual so Hussein's got everything in his shop waiting for you to collect... Actually worked out cheaper than we thought, GBP took a slight knock against the US $ at the time of the transaction...

p.s.s. our leaflets are on the way so we can start distributing them once they land...... i'm going to leave some with Hussein, and the majority with Jonathan, Richard and Gavin at Gargash.. what do you think bro..

Slight Knock...Slight Knock....Thats like saying that it was an ice cube that sank the Titanic.

EB spares....I bet they never even charged you VAT No wonder it worked out cheaper

I am not a financial expert but I reckon the knock is louder than a TS's big ends after a snapped timing belt

Dude, the stealer here is a pirate

example:

Radiator for my 156 v6, AED 1700 from the stealer, AED 600 shipped and custom paid from EB.

I got a radiator delivered, fitted and some spare Cambelt kit for the GTA for what I would have paid just to buy the radiator here.. Thats an Iceburg for sure

How about Ron's Clutch for AED 783 Nett or AED 1000 incl, shipping and customs duty as opposed to AED 3500 for a GTA clutch kit from the dealer.... how's that Mo.... sure Ron is laughing now...

Kevin and Jason at EB Spares are lifesavers, period... without them i would have sold my Alfa's by now... and be driving around heaven forbid in a japanese sewing machine...

One Signture per rep

Stephen is the UAE Rep

We got a great network for finding spares for Alfa's in the UK if it's something hard to find let us know and we get it

I wonder how that compares to the dealer here? Normally our dealer is not too bad for prices, although they even admit that they have put up prices over the last year.

Must admit that EBspares is good

Bought the Koni FSD's and Eibach Pro kit from Larkspeed in the UK acouple of months back.........shipping was

yeah, the shipping is horrendously expensive, it's always my issue with EB Spares, but it's not their fault admittedly, we just fall in the most expensive shipping zone unfortunately...

Maybe when the numbers pick up, we might get in stuff cheaper... guess that's why we are all trying to get meets organised, and parts bought on a groupbuy basis so we can save on the shipping...
