Hi all,

I am considering returning to the ranks of alfa owners, and my decision will be to some extent shaped by the proximity (or not) of a good alfa specialist to my new location. Who do people rate in the south west to work on their precious alfas?

I am looking for a good indie garage happy to do regular servicing, and the odd bit of tinkering as well.

Cheers. :thumbs:

Aha. I see a flaw in my plan :lol:

I live in Axbridge, North Somerset. I will be commuting to Taunton on a regular basis. But I will travel for the right garage, just don't want it to be a million miles that's all.

I get my Trophy serviced in Exmouth, so Exeter would not be too much of a stretch. Have you got their contact details and what are they like? :)

Hi rafe005

Sorry to dredge up an old post, but i don't suppose you have contact details for Auto Italiana? More specifically a phone number as the one listed on the site isn't recognised.

Hope they've not gone bust...

In the meantime, can anyone else recommend a trusted Alfa specialist in the SW?

Cheers!

I'm also looking for one to do a service on my 159 JTDM. Exeter as above or Bristol (I've been to Steve Bateman and would again for mechanical stuff but he doesn't have the 'laptop' to plug into the 159).

TIA

Cheers to you both, Badger and Mike. Will give Red Motari a buzz, purely because the Bridport/Dorchester/Blandford road is a beaut!

Cheers again!

No worries. It is a great road! You'll be in safe hands with Andy and Dave.

In Bristol the best bloke as far as I'm concerned and often mentioned on AO is Duncan Slade 07968 488942 (in BS5). Well known for his good work and modest charges.

Any of you in need of a darn good mechanic, just located above Bristol in Yate then try Paul Barret ( http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/members/paulbarrett98.html ) He's just replaced the engine in my GTV for me (thanks Autolusso for suppling it), and done a fantastic job, seeing as it was done in the evenings and weekends. Very, very experianced mechanic, mot tester, and getting intp Alfas big time! :) (photo album of the engine change will be available soon!).

Hey Vamos, if you're working in taunton, Bensport Alfa is just in Ilton which is only 15 minutes on the outskirts of taunton. i use them a few times as i work in taunton and are very friendly and helpfull, plus the prices are very resonable.
