Just thought I would stick this here in the hope a potential buyer gets scared off of this car.
A white GT has been to Neil at Italia Auto Parts to sort an ABS issue. The car has been in an accident and to put it nicely, has been badly repaired. Neil has refused to work on the car as it shouldn't even be on the road.
If your on facebook, have a look at AlfaBook which has pics of the car.

I'm not on facebook, so can't see pics. What's so bad with it?

I thought white GT's were only 2010 models?

Dont think you can, at least I cant work out how to do it.The alfabook group on facebook is open to all to view I think.

It is a shocking thread, the attitude of the trader is appalling. He told the mechanic to sort out the ABS light. apparently the airbag light has been removed, along with most of the airbags. Theres a video of all the error codes coming up on multiscan.

bet it appears on gumtree or similar low profile selling media

According to the DVLA that reg is on a Red GT so either its had a colour change or the plate is wrong

I saved the image to my computer.
I assume the OP on facebook has allowed it to get the message out. Couple more.
Cool, I couldn't get it to work. :thumbs:

Hope this saves someone from an absolute nightmare.

It might save them from something much worse than a nightmare given the standard of repairs, and of course the airbags being removed !!

That is totally shocking. My wife is on fb, and I got her to join the group so I can read some more. Clearly that car should be crushed. How did it get back on the road in such a state?
