After rain stopped play on my last thread:
http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/alfa-gta/128748-servicing-not-a-black-and-white-issue.html

... I thought I'd post again regarding servicing.

Over the past few weeks, I've deliberated over where I should take my car and exactly how far to travel to get it looked after. Moreover, cost has obviously played a large part in the decision, but at the end of the day I was expecting quite a large outlay so really the decision came down to finding a trusted independent who wasn't at the opposite end of the country.

Thankfully, Autolusso is 'just' 90 minutes from my house and after speaking to (the renowned?) Mr Kirkham, had negotiated a pretty good price for a stack of work which I'm pleased to say has left my GTA in even better nick :)

Nearly forgot! Here's what I had done:

5-Year Service
Water Pump
Cambelt
Clutch
Plugs
MOT
Q2!

Never really believed the hype about the Q2 and my reason for getting it done was mainly to avoid a catastrophe with the original, but within a few miles of Ned's place, I believed every word I'd read! The car is sooooo much smooooother now, far less torque-steer and actually feels safer (no more 'dancing around' when you plant your right foot).

If you haven't already, save up – get a Q2 fitted!

I told you the Q2 was good! :p

I only wish there was an AutoLusso near me - I have no specialist to take my car to anymore so I'm having to do everything myself. Fancy opening a franchise in York, Ned?

Another Q2 convert:cool: Our V6 GT is getting a service at Ned's on Thursday. Had the Q2 & PF pads + service done in March. 12K since (high miler company car replacement for my wife:wow) but includes a 2.5k mile road trip to the Mille Miglia:cool:
