Wad In Wolverhampton

Hi ya
just had my car back from wad in wolverhampton
they were absolutly superb
they did my cambelt, all tensioners, all rollers, variator, auxillary belt, water pump, bottom radiator hose, oil and filter change and stopped a leak from my sump plug and i was only charged £540 which i thought was a bargin in comparrison to some of the quotes i have seen on here for less work
so anyone wanting to take there alfa go there, my will be going there for everything from now on, and they are really helpful and dont do any work thats un necessary to try and get extra cash
highly recommended

Re: Wad In Wolverhampton

Good to hear - thanks for the recommendation (though they're a bit too far away for me!).

Cheers
Aubrey

Re: Wad In Wolverhampton

Glad they looked after you (I'd have been gobsmacked if they hadn't)
Always get good service there

It's great when a garage shows you exactly what they have done. Adrian always has a old cardboard box handy, full of the bits he has replaced when you collect the car

Not sure how far north you are in Worcestershire, but my GTA will be having its belts done in a couple of weeks' time at NJS in Pershore. As folk have said for WAD, I can't recommend NJS highly enough.

Cheers

Adrian used to give me a cardboard box also.............with all the bits that had dropped off
Only joking Ade....You're a top man. Hopefully I'll be seeing you soon.

Cant agree more, the kind lady I spoke to on the phone at WAD posted out a new slave cylinder for my clutch in double quick time! very greatful to them for that. They definitely have my patronage. Keep it up

Re: Wad In Wolverhampton

Went to put an AO flyer on a 156 in the Brindley Place car park last night to find it was WAD's courtesy car so I didn't bother

Re: Wad In Wolverhampton

I've been using WAD for about 8 or 9 years, for my previous 155 and now my 156. They've done numerous services and an engine rebuild and been spot on every time. The whole team there is spot on, from booking you in, doing the work and handing the car back, calling you if there's additional work to be done etc.

Just down the road from me and couldn’t recommend them more. Did my cambelt and water pump etc for very good price. Handy to have experts on the doorstep!

Re: Wad In Wolverhampton

I just had a phone conversation with them and was well impressed - very professional and gave the impression they knew and actually cared about Alfas.
