Alfissimo have re opened. not getting into details but they are alive and well
In that case we should re-open the debate from last year this time if it is worth giving them a second chance? Many guys where of the opinion, but many where not.

Ok I've decided this will cause a rise of opinions - place them here...

I think everyone deserves a second chance.
Not sure what happened at the end but in the 90’s they were amongst the best although that did not take a lot with places like TOIT’s and MJM as opposition, at least they only sold Alfas and didn’t attempt selling you a Sentra when you were clearly drooling over n 156.:rolleyes:

Yes - wait for the other guys to punt you...

Turbonutters have a workshop on Schubert street in PTA.

JZee - I'm sure you would've been ok with the quote to have left the car there... I'm sure they'll be ok... They have years experience and a name to protect / rebuild.

Jzee, sorry about not responding over pm, had a rough day..

My comments about Alfissimo is bias I guess.

Call me crazy but I hate their guts... (If this Alfissimo is still run by the same bunch)

Never liked mr skinny with a black shirt, long hair, circle sunglasses and a Brera so pimped up you wont see a US Basketball player dead in it. To bling for them.

The old Alfissimo was only concerned about making as much from the return of Alfa to SA as they possibly could. They would screw you over at every opportunity.

Well my opinion at least...

When you only post on a social forum to sell your business, it says a lot about you. That's why I respect Turbonutters.

I also don't know what transpired, but would like to make the suggestion that if there are more part outlets available, let it be.

It is frustrating & time consuming to source parts for older models, and my first attempt to get some from AK, is dissapointing w.r.t service, on two seperate requests. :mad:

If the needle is on 50C most of the time it means the thermostat is stuck open. The car should be running with the needle sitting at 90C. If you drive in high traffic the needle will creep up to 90 and the the fan will regulate it to stay around 90, but when you drive freely, the the wind cools it down and it drops to 50.

It will not be catastrophic in the short run, but the car is less efficient when cooler and the wear is bigger - so it will break something in the long term. So get it fixed sometime in the not too distant future.
