  1. Satisfied customer leaves Bournemouth branch

    Auto Lusso
    Thanks to the Bournemouth branch, what was going to be just a wizard exhaust fitment resulted in the team highlighting some serious defects and fixing a few minor niggles, some of which would have been at the very least advisories on the up and coming MOT. Every body was friendly and...
  2. Top work from Loz and the guys at Autolusso Bournemouth

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Had my old girl in for some TLC, eibach pro and bilstein b6 kit, new top mounts, polybushed transverse arms and full alignment. Result; different car. Handling is amazing, firm but not harsh, responsive and incredible in corners. Dare I say it she handles better than my GT 3.2! Also diagnosed...
  3. Autolusso Bournemouth

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Visited Autolusso for a free Health Check and a remap on Saturday and am impressed with the set up Laurence and the guys have there! Laurence replaced the plastic bleed valve free of charge, despite needing to drill it out, and adjusted the handbrake which was binding as part of the free...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So this week was the final push on the GT... plans were Turbo VNT re-calibration and GTA clutch and SMF conversion. I suspected that the hybrid I had on the car was still not ''quite right'' so I elected to take it off the car and get it back to turbo dynamics...those of you that have followed...

    Just a very big thank you for Lawrence and his colleague at Autolusso Bournemouth yesterbay (saturday).

  7. All change in Bournemouth

    South West
    I've had an e-mail from Meridien in Bournemouth to say that the Alfa dealership will now be handled by the Westover Group. Westover are already the local Fiat dealers so I guess it sort of makes sense.
  8. A quick thanks to Autolusso Bournemouth

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I would just like to post a quick thanks to Laurence at Autolusso Bournemouth for finally sorting out the clutch on my GT. A few others had tried and failed! In addition to this, he sorted my ABS and horn and a few other small jobs that I hadn't known were in need of attention. All in all, some...

    General Alfa Discussion
    I would like to express a huge thanks to Laurence and everyone at Autolusso Bournemouth for all their hard work and help in maintaining my 147 Ducati Corse and sorting out lots of annoying and fiddly issues that a lot of other places can't be bothered to look at. Nothing has been too much...
  11. JTS head rebuild at Autolusso Bournemouth

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I posted much the same thing as part of my ongoing thread in the Images forum but I thought I'd repost here as I thought it might be of more interest to fellow JTSers. So, at 107,500 miles exactly, it broke down for the first time (in my few years with it, anyway) a few weeks back. The...
  12. Autolusso Bournemouth

    General Alfa Discussion
    Just wanted to post my thanks to Laurence and the guys at Autolusso Bournemouth, took my 159 in for some work there recently and reckon it's the best customer service I've had in a long time. I was kept informed of what was happening throughout the process and whilst my car probably wasn't the...

  15. Autolusso - Bournemouth

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Big thanks to Joss and Chris who have checked my recently acquired 156 V6 over... diagnosing, advising, replacing and repairing bits and bobs with enthusiasm and efficiency. They clearly love old Alfa's as much as those of us who are trying to keep them on the road. Nothing seems to be too much...

  17. Autolusso Bournemouth and my GT

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    At the start of this month I made a phonecall to Autolusso Bournemouth, I booked in my 2004 GT for a cambelt change and Waxoyl at the end of the month after reading recommendations about them on this forum. I had wanted it done sooner, but understood that they were busy. The local specialists...

  20. Autolusso Bournemouth - 2.0 GTV Mechanical Restoration

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Here is something a little different from the GTA rebuilds that are usually seen on here. It is great to see someone who is really passionate about their 2.0 GTV. A good customer of mine who owns a lovely 2002 2.0 GTV that has been using more and more oil and is now using about 3 litres of oil...
