Many people use and trust them for service - I've not used them for that but I've bought parts off them and always got a cracking deal and service.

Make sure that price includes an oil and filter change, many place will only do it if the oil change warning is on and then charge extra for it. best to ask before.

I'll probably get lynched for this, but I took my old 147 there for a cambelt change a couple of years back and the service was terrible. After being convinced by Ned that they'd only change the water pump after checking if it was necessary, the car came back with a horrible wining pump. I complained and took it back and they agreed to change the pump just for the parts cost, I then picked the car up with the engine management light on. Taking it back another 5-6 times, their 'solution' was to reset the ECU fault codes and give some waffle about having the battery off. I gave up and fixed it myself with a copy of Alfadiag and some common sense.....(one of the lambda sensor cables had been damaged during the work). Needless to say I wont be taking any car of mine to them again.

I always used Auto Lusso for servicing on my 156 (haven't had my 147 long enough to have it down the garage yet) and was very pleased with them. Good service, well priced ;) and always had some courtesy car or other available. It must speak volumes that I travelled to Dunstable from Uxbridge/Weybridge to use them - I like to stick with someone who is a known quantity so am prepared for a bit of inconvenience to do so.

First got involved with them when the diff blew up on my V6 and at the time they were the place to go for a Q2. Granted my engine did come back running on 5 cylinders after it was steam cleaned, but Ned came and fixed it in Tesco's car park after Auto Italia in Brooklands so it wasn't all bad!

I always take my GTA there for servicing, they know Alfa's inside out and offer a very honest and reasonably priced service.

I was recently quoted £425 for my Abarth service for an 18k service. AutoLusso did the same service with all the Abarth approved parts/lubes etc for just under £200 and it drives like a dream.

People do travel from all-over and I can really understand why.......

I only speak the truth..........:thumbs:

Had a hard old time with my GTA and our professional relationship was stretched to limit. Although no fault of Ned's or mine to be honest !!

Well, I find Ned very honest, not stroppy! He is under pressure most of the time by the likes of us Alfisti wanting a perfect job doing and being very fussy, but in my experience of some 5 years of using AutoLusso, they get it spot on every time and are extremely knowledgeable about everything Alfa!

Their prices are very reasonable and they did a fab job on my Abarth too.

Incidentally, I bought your GTA from Ned, Jimmy, and it drove like new from the moment I bought it. It's been to Italy three times, once on a days track session at Monza and has never skipped a beat in nearly 3 years and I won't part with it!

Well after I'd spent the best part of six months getting Ned and Co. to sort it I'm not surprised it's working fine now !!

He's alright old Ned he did well out of me and I did alright out of the warranty he flogged me !!!

Good to see somebody got to enjoy the old girl:thumbs:

Can't complain. Had my cam belt changed and air con re-done with a new filter all for a lot less than most other places. Will use them in the future for any other work that may need doing.
