  1. Closure of Desira Southgate

    Alfa Giulia
    Desira have just e-mailed to say they are closing their Southgate, London branch at the end of December after 20 years. I have been a loyal customer of theirs for the whole of that period and now have to find a place to have my 2017 Giulia serviced. I would welcome views on who is good in...

    I have been having some issues with my G. Do any of you recommend me taking it to the Desira Southgate branch? Heard some good stuff but I rather travel an extra 50miles to know it's with the best!

    East Anglia
    I finally gave in the Bonnet catch recall letters today. I took it to Desira in Bury, where they squirted some WD40 on it. (Glad they did it, as that's a job I could have never attempted!:rolleyes:) They didn't even clean the bloody catch! Instead They then took the oppotunity to make a list...

  7. DBS Desira - are their customers now managed by another dealer?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My 147 originally came from DBS Desire in Hertford who have now folded. Unfortuantly, it was missing the service book when I got it, and I'd like to get another one made up. Does anyone know if DBS Desira's customers are now handled/transferred to another dealership? Or, failing that, does...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I walked into my local dealer to ask about a PX deal the other day and was told I couldn't be served because the Alfa man had gone home sick! Can you believe it?
