  1. Diminishing returns

    General Alfa Discussion
    Am I right in thinking the following 1. ARUK only make money on the profit from every car (or parts) sold in the UK. 2. If you sell less cars, then the costs of ARUK to sell those cars basically goes up as a share of each car. 3. Less dealers mean less chance to sell cars and again costs for...
  2. Why Cant All Dealers do Service like Palmers Hemel Hempstead?

    Alfa Giulia
    I have just had my 36,000 mile service done by Palmers Hemel Hempstead and I have to say they were very good. I dropped my car off and we did a full walk around to check for any damage so we knew the condition of the car before they touched it. Same thing with the hire car. I received a video...
  3. Dealers in decline

    General Alfa Discussion
    Attempted to look at a Giulia today at Stoneacre Wolverhampton. What a disappointment. The dealership is tiny and is full of Fiats and Jeeps. There is no impression of a brand reborn here, just another string in Stoneacre’s bow. Worse, there were no Alfas! The signage was all old style Alfa...
  4. Latest Giulietta at dealers!

    Alfa Giulietta
    As I left the local dealers having booked the Stelvio in to get the alarm sensitivity reduced a Giulietta caught my eye. It was a silver one with the latest yellow insert on the front bumper lower grille. It still looked good at Geneva this year. The Mito was missing for the first time but there...

  6. Dealers repairing window winders with cable ties

    South Africa
    In March of last year I bought a 2015 Fiat 500S 1.4 with 17500km on the clock from Grand Central in Midrand. According to the service book the one previous service had been carried out by Grand Central themselves. When signing for the car I discovered that they had included Smash&Grab window...

  11. Wheeler Dealers

    General Motoring Discussion
    There is a good selection of episodes on the Quest app if anyone’s interested. Looks like the complete season 6 is there and some others I’ve missed over the years. Might be worth a look as there isn’t any annoying ads and they seem to be in HD (on my ipad anyway) even if you have the dvd’s...
  12. Dealers Rated

    General Alfa Discussion
    https://www.autoexpress.co.uk/car-ne...r-dealers-2018 If this has already been posted on here somewhere then apologies and whilst such surveys are pretty pointless, Alfa seem to be featuring rather nicely in many of them nowadays. If I were to fill one in for BMW today it would be pretty bleak...

    Just been told that Lookers in Cardiff are closing at the end of the month, that means not a single dealer in Wales even along the M4 corridor, no wonder I have only seen one other Giulia in Cardiff :curse: Waiting for reply from ARUK as I will not take my car over 40 mls to Bristol, totally...
  18. Dealers ready to support Guilia

    Alfa Giulia
    I visited my local Alfa dealer to buy an Alfa Red touch up paint. While there I asked about their experiences with the software updates. The touch up whilst listed on the system "wasn't available to order". The service reception checked with the Alfa technician and reported that as he'd not...
