I've read on here that it's advised to go to an Alfa specialist for work done.

I know this is not for everything but what things exactly should ONLY an Alfa mechanic do exclusively ?

I think alot of this depends on the age & value of the car. I for one with my rickety old 155 would grudge taking it to a specialist when there is a wealth of help from other alfa owners & I'm handy with a hammer. On the other hand if I were lucky enough to be roaming around in a Brera or a nice GT I'd preferably goto a specialist to have work done correctly.

Personally the specalists I would have do things like cambelts and variators on TS's they require special tools and if they do it and it goes bang you have normally got a warrany

This is a good question. I need to replace front brakes discs and pads on my 159.

I'm tempted to get this fixed at a quick fit type place rather than a specialist?

Are you mad?

granted, you don't need an Alfa specialist to change the brakes but a "Quick fit type place" is 100% no no. Use a well respected garage.

+1 I do everything else myself, the timing and some confusing electrical problems baffle me so the car goes to a mechanic for these but I love a bit of spanner time.
