  1. 36k / 4 year service at Autobarn

    Alfa Giulietta
    Car is due its MOT and 36k/4 year service and decided to go for Autobarn as I read somewhere on this forum that they were an Alfa specialist. Cost comes in at £340 including VAT and the £55-ish for the MOT. So about £390 all in. Not quite as value for money as I thought it might have been - was...
  2. MiTo Servicing 36k

    Alfa MiTo
    Hey all, my MiTo is now running around the 35k mile mark and I've been told that it should be serviced at 36k miles? However the service mileage on the car still says I have another 3.5k miles before servicing is required? Which is best to do? Hoping the 3k is more accurate as money is a little...
  3. 36k service cost?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Anyone had a 36k service at an Alfa dealer recently? Looking back through the forum it seems like people have paid c. £400, but I've just been quoted £583 (incl. VAT) by our local dealer (Palmers Hemel) - which seems a bit excessive to say the least. What's the going rate? (It's a 1.4MA 170...
  4. End of warranty / first MOT / 36k service

    Alfa MiTo
    Hello All. After several months of ownership our Mito is approaching its 3rd birthday. I've booked it into a local Indy (Peak Alfa) for the MOT and 36k service. My question is: What is the process if anything crops up that would be covered under warranty? Do I need verbal, or written...
  5. 36k miles service. 59 Reg. Mito 1.4T 155

    Alfa MiTo
    Taking the car to MVC near manchester after the good reviews from here and have been quoted £490 for a full 36k service plus brake fluid change and can belt change. What do you think? How does it compare with main dealer prices? Car is over 4 years old and on 32k miles at the moment.
  6. 36k service due...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Apologies if this sort of thing has been asked a million times before but can anyone recommend a decent place to get my 159 2.4 auto serviced? Somewhere reasonably in the Leicestershire area would be ideal but I'm not too fussed about travelling a bit if it means getting the job done properly...
  7. 36k service on GT petrol

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    As I've only owned the car for three weeks I've decided to take a 1000 mile 'hit' and have the 36k service done a little early, in the interest of knowing all's well. What recommendations would you guys have for getting the garage to focus on? Cam/Water Pump/Tensioners (what else in that...
  8. 36k service costs?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Just wondering what people are being quoted for a 36k service. I originally booked my car in at a very well known (and well regarded) main dealer but was quoated £475 for the service. After a bit of trawling on here for recommended specialist in my area I eventually booked it in at Heath Road...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've had a quick search and not found much to answer my query, so here goes. I've got my 36k service on a GT 2.0 JTS due in about a fortnight, so rang the local dealer just outside Solihull and got quoted £700 for the service plus £150 to replace the cam variator whilst theyre at it (its...
  11. 36k Service

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, Can someone please clarify exactly what SHOULD be done in the 36k service... I've read various different Alfa specialists service pages and they all seem to contradict each other. The Autodelta website says they don't even change the cambelt, just visually inspect it... Getting a tad...
  12. GT '56 JTDm 36k service - CAM Belt

    Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    My car is a few weeks away from its 36k services, this will still be within the 3 year warrenty period (exp. Sept '09). How much should I be expecting to pay a AR dealer? Should the CAM Belt be changed in this services or do I need to be asking for it to get done? Anything I should try a get...
  13. GT cambelt schedule is now 36k NOT 72k (according to ARUK)

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I thought I'd share this ***-bit as I have seen a fair few threads regarding cambelts snapping recently. Alfa Romeo have updated their service schedule and reduced the distance at which the cambelt needs replacing. As far as I know, this affects all GT models. Below is a direct quote from Alfa...
  14. 36k Service, Manufacturer or Independent...?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi All, Quick question(s)! Just coming upto my 36k service on a '07 GT JTDm. It's booked into Mangoletsi for £400 inc parts, labour etc. Just wondered if anyone had any thoughts on taking it to an independent garage (I think there is somewhere near me in St Helens, Alfaholics). If I did this...
  15. JTD 16v 36k service queries

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Does anyone have an idea on how much I should be spending on a 36k service on a 147 JTD 16v? At a specialist that is, NOT a stealer! In fact is it neccessary to use a specialist for this job? Obviously I always would for anything more er, specialist, like timing belt... But if my local general...
  16. 36K service and no oil change

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Just left the car into the dealer for its 36K service. The cost was ~£260 and guess what - that doesnt include and oil change WTF? I asked the service manager about this and he said that the AR schedule didnt include an oil change at 36K. He showed me the schedule and it included air and fuel...

  20. 159 2.2 JTS 36k Service

    General Alfa Discussion
    Ok, just had my bella in for the 36k service and had a black 159 2.4 JTD as a courtesy car. The service was pretty painless at just over £300. It's back next Friday to have the front shocks replaced and a mounting plate or something. I've been getting a terrible rattle on the front end for...
