Greetings, I've got my first service and MOT as an Alfa owner coming up but I'm struggling to find anyone in or around the Tottenham area with any kind of good review.

could anyone kindly recommend a decent, trustworthy garage somewhere nearby?

thanks guys

In Cambridge for the weekend so got a quote from an independent who has good reviews on this forum

full service £275
timing belt full kit £340
inc labour and vat

seems a little excessive to me, but this is my first alfa service. what do you think of those prices?

THE best engine in one the prettiest Alfas for ages you've got there...

From our way in Cambridge you can't do better than Alfaworkshop in Royston (excellent rep - do a forum search). Station up the road with fast frequent service back into Cambridge or down to London.

They do loan cars too. They're a bit old but at least they're Alfas, though they tend to get booked up quickly.

Have a look at their Alfa Romeo Servicing page, where you can book online (and get quotes on most common stuff).

72,000 mile service with cam belt and the all important water pump for £480 inc.

HTH :)

Alfa workshop in Royston are good, I make a day trip there from west London for my servicing.

I have also used Veloces in Barnet a bit closer to home for you.

I would try calling Alfarama see how much they charge, some of the other London specialists I have found to be very expensive. My old car had a bill from January 2011 one essentially was a service and some front brake pads and discs and the cost was over £800! of which £450. Another London specialist I used about 10 years ago charged over £900 for a service and to replace from and rear brake discs and pads, I dread to think what they charge now. At the time I didn't really know any better and how easy it is to do this stuff. The last specialist I used was Alfa Workshop for a cambelt change on my old GTA, I found them to be very good, it's quite an expensive job but I had no complaints whatsoever and they seemed like a good bunch.
