Hi All,

A little help if you please, my job is taking me back to the Midlands for the first time in four years and the first time during my Alfa owning experience and its time to say goodbye to Geoff at Melbury Motors Shaftesbury. Although I bought the MJet whilst on leave from Guests outside Solihull, does anyone know of a good specialist in the Coventry/Nuneaton/Hinckley/Meridan/Leamington/Warwick area

Thanks in advance

Phil

A bit further a feild, but worth a try if you have no luck where you are is Northants Alfa Romeo in Higham Ferrers

I rang for a quote for a 60k service on my old 147 and was quoted about £120 than the main dealer

Many thanks, I'll put them on the top of the empty list for the moment, but I suspect with the paucity of dealers in the area there's also a paucity of specialists, I might have to suffer dealer prices for the next couple of years. At least my annual milage will drop considerably as I will no longer be charging back to Coventry every weekend....years mileage to yesterday was 24,000 and now the Mjet has 48,000 on the clock in just over two years!

cheers

Phil

Hi Phil,
These guys in Wolverhampton are highly recommended:
WAD Alfa Romeo
I haven't used them myself yet but will do for the imminent 36k service.
Bring some Tangle Foot with you - I grew up in Wareham and miss the local brew.
Cheers,
Simon_S

If you don't mind travelling 60 or 70 miles I would recommend Allitalia in Wrexham (01978 757588), a very high quality service for a very reasonable price. There were a couple of Alfa dealers I used in the Midlands when I lived in Birmingham about 8 years ago, and I definitely wouldn't use them again.
