Has anyone got any inside knowledge on accident repair centres and their process? Initially, I thought they would do a pretty good inspection for damage. A collision to back for example may have had a knock-on effect elsewhere. A large force to the back could cause a fluid leak for example...
My 159 rear badge and wheel centres have seen better days so I decided to buy some replacements. Bought them from eBay. New genuine Alfa parts still in boxes.
Opened the wheel centres first. Made in China and very light and cheap feeling. Rear badge made in Poland feels heavier and more...
At long last, I've bitten the bullet and ordered some winter tyres from MyTyres.com. Everyone in Europe seems to use them apart from us, and although we don't often have severe winters like they do in mainland Europe, they seem to work well in the wet and low temperatures, regardless of whether...
These are 4x98, could i get them built to fit my alfa sprint (stock wheels & suspension atm) without widening the arches or replacing anything? Would they improve the ride much or just sexiness factor? Also, gold on red, is this too much? Any ideas of cost? Cheers
ebay item from steve parry where does he manage to get his parts from :confused:
Just recived these wheel centres from an Italian ebay seller, What ever you do dont buy a set as they are absolute crap :tut:http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=370494166630&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT
The Wheel centres on the 159 are looking a bit shabby, they look as though they are pealing at the edges! do you think Alfa would replace them in the 3rd year warrenty? mores to the point in the last 20 days of the 3rd year warrenty :cheese:
Worth a punt or just replace em myself?????
I live in Gloucester and own an Alfa 159 2.4 '210'. The car has low miles (only 25K, for a '57' plate) but I purchased this car without service history. So, I am inclined to get a full service done. But, I've heard a lot of negatives about Alfa Dealers.
So, it would really help if you guys...
Ok point me in the right direction: Where to go and where to stay away from.
Please try to be unbiased, if it is a dealer and the give good service, say so and do not diss em just because they are a dealer.
I was looking for an Alfa Romeo Authorised Service centre near warwick. Can anyone help me with it. I looked up on the internet and found on in Knowle, Solihull but when i called them, they are quite dear in prices. i own a 1.9 GT jtdm so was looking to get the car serviced.
When I bought my 156 GTA four years ago,I am pretty sure that at that time there existed some Alfa Romeo main dealers who were designated as "GTA Centres" and were specialists with that model. Is that correct ? Do they still exist ?
Anybody know of any decent Alfa specialists preferably in the Yorkshire/North west area?
From what I've read off here, AutoLusso looks like the best garage but is quite a way for those of us who live up North.
Maybe a new section on the forum would be useful, recommending garages nationwide...
I Recently got some new wheels for my 156, but have had major trouble getting hold of some Alfa wheel centres to finish the look off, All the ones i came accross were the wrong diameter, or just too expensive, so working in the printing trade i decided to knock some up myself (with...
