They used to be called second city motors, it's the same guys. There is a thread for them. I bought my 156 from them 10 years ago, and would go to them again I suppose. Only thing is that it isn't the easiest locality to get a decent test drive being just off the middle ring road.Hi,
I am looking to purchase a car from lovealfa.co.uk and wondering if anyone here has had any experience of them as a company?
I'm just a bit confused...did the dealers pay for the repairs, or did you have to dip into your own pocket?Sadly though we had a problem! Less than 5 days in and the clutch went, slipping in 4th, 5th & 6th when on full power. I was gutted. But after emailing and calling Tobin, he immediately offered a full refund on the car and for it to be collected from me at no charge. I rejected this offer as I wanted to keep the car, I wanted the car fixed and although the warranty would not cover the clutch failing. Tobin agreed to collect the car, give me a Guillietta as a courtesy car whilst mine was away & send the car to MotorMech for a full clutch and flywheel replacement.
Tobin paid for clutch, ancillaries, and all the labour. They also returned my car full of fuel, paid for someone to collect and return my car and gave me the courtesy car all insured for no charge.I'm just a bit confused...did the dealers pay for the repairs, or did you have to dip into your own pocket?
Things can and do go wrong but it is how the matter is dealt with that is important imo. That sounds very fair. Now you can enjoy the Brera.Tobin paid for clutch, ancillaries, and all the labour.

I decided to add a flywheel change as the gearbox was out, which I paid for as I believed this was a prudent thing to do. It didn't need changing due to wear or failure, but I decided that I'd rather not have to pay for the gearbox to come out again for a worn flywheel during my ownership.
