I'm not going to go into massive detail, but if you are an owner driver make sure your car will be repaired by a properly franchised dealer. I have had my car off the road for over a month now having accepted the insurance company repairer. Now the car is going to have to go to a dealer to sort...

I want to recommend Alfashop in Norwich for anyone looking for an indy garage in East Anglia.
Phillip and Karl were really helpful and forthcoming with advice. The whole experience was made easier by having friendly and communicative staff, keen to share what is pretty clearly a good deal of...
Ladies and Gentlemen.
We had a meet a few days ago 6 people and 5 Alfas where we discussed meets in the region. It was all a bit new as, apart from me, no-one had attended a meet before. It was a really pleasant couple of hours with people who had, hitherto, been strangers but soon got along...

After discussion it has been agreed that we should have a meet in Norwich and, if all goes well, then we should start thinking about expanding a bit further into East Anglia.
So as an initial meet we have decided to get together here:-
from 18.00 hours onwards on...

I'm about to buy a second hand Alfa, I live in Norwich since 5 years (I come from Italy), and I'll need some trusted place to check some corrosion issues and for some servicing.
Anyone has suggestions in Norwich or surroundings? Someone I can really trust.
Got my little 147 2.0 JTDm 140 Lusso and I've come into a little money. Instead of trading it in I've decided I'd like to upgrade and 'pimp' the car. I have up to a max of £3k I can spend on it - but the work can't be carried out myself so I do have to take labour, and a good full...

Thanks if anyone can help
Can anyone recommend a competent mechanic (or garage) in the Norwich area for a cambelt change, preferably not VAT registered! FIAT diesel also needs a belt change.
If anyone does feel like doing their own change I have camshaft clamps for the 156 and others which they can borrow.:D

I'm think of getting the stonechips sorted out, and was looking at going to East Bilney Coachworks in Norwich to get a quote for it.
Has anyone had any experiences of their work, and or recommend an alternative in the Norfolk area?
My name's Matt and I bought a 2001, 147 1.6 lusso last week to be my daily drive. Bought it with all the usual problems, variator gone, sticky gear selector to name but two. Will be sorting the variator out as my first priority and taking it from there.
