Hello, have been a member for a few weeks now and havent even introduced myself (how rude). I am new to alfa ownership but am finding sites such as this invaluable for help and information.

Only a few weeks into ownship and a service is due in about 400 miles!! eek time to sample this side of the experience.

Anyone know how much I should be paying and what is involved in the 96,000 mile service on a 156 2.5V6 ? Any pointers on whos the best place to use in my area ? (based in Sandhurst Berks.)

Thanks guys. :)

Dan, there's a thread by Hoygaard at the top of the Just Images lounge entitled 'How To Post Pictures'. Follow the instructions and you can't go wrong. :)

hello

and welcome.
should get round to introducing myself sometime soon but waiting for an oportunity where the car isn't filthy or in the garage to take some decent photos.

you could do worse than contact AlfaAid over in maidenhead they've been very helpful in a couple of trickey situations i've found myself in. don't know what the going rate is for your service good luck

cheers

The last owner used to use them so I have considered them. They dont seem to have a website but I have found thier number. I have settled for AH Motorsports as they appear to have a good rep and are closer to me. Another possibility was Alfanatic in Fleet, but again they are further away. (although still only a few miles from me)
