Hello....I'm pretty new to this website even though I joined a few months ago. Have a 156 Selespeed from new since 2001. No problems except for a dead alternator after year! Since then touch wood! Only gripe now is that oil consumption is way too high since I started using it on the motorway. Thinking of taking it off the main dealer Desira in Southgate, North London because their service is so poor. Anyone been to Veloces in New Barnet? Any recommendations?

Hi Kevin,

I don't know what happened to our usual welcoming committee, but let me say that we're glad to have you join our nutty little community. :) It also falls on me to post the obligatory request for pictures of your Alfa, so here goes: please submit photos of your car for our customary inspection process. ;) :D

I can't help you with the garage recommendation, but if my memory serves me correctly, I think Veloces has a pretty decent reputation. (It really is sad that I know garage reputations in foreign countries. :rolleyes: I think it means I've been around here WAY too long. ;) ). A quick search of past threads will give you a better sense of what people think of the place. I know it has been discussed in the past.

Well spotted Toronto.
;)
Veloces seem pretty clued up - I have a friend who uses them. There are many other specialists in and around London as well. Here is a selection, but I hasten to add I have not used any of them I am from oop North.

Welcome to AO - another satisfied Selespeed owner :D

What grade of oil are you using. It's a common complaint about high oil consumption during motorway driving.
