A few regions have this type of thread in their lounges, so I thought I'd put one up for North Wales.
So post up who you use, would recommend or who to avoid with a 10ft barge pole!

I'll start with -

AllItalia 01978 757588
Paxton Garage
Llewelyn Rd
Vron, Tanyfron
Wrexham

They replaced my clutch and installed a Q2 on the GTV with no problems since :thumbs:

I can highly recommend Allitalia. Since I bought my 156 in 2008 they've done the Cambelt (which included Variator, Water Pump), Full Service. Which included Plugs, Filters, Oil etc.
Rear Wheel bearing and Front top arm.

They know there stuff and always give me good customer service.:thumbs:

Do you know if he'd come to Wrexham? There is a small dent in the roof of the GTV which is bugging me and I've been waiting for a recommendation for a good 'dent' man. :)

Do you mind me asking how much he charged? :eek:

Hi Rich, I believe he travels far and wide as he does a lot work for various car dealers.

I had 2 small dents in the drivers door and charged £45. (I think he quoted £35 for one.) Give him a call.

Hi SIF

If you get stuck in the Conwy area I can recommend Richmond Garage in Colwyn Bay - 01492532459 - run by an ex-Mercedes mechanic so I have only had run of the mill stuff done but always good and well priced, his son does body work and I have been very impressed with the paint work!

Also AutoHaus in Mochdre nr Colwyn Bay also very helpful when we took the BMW in - did see a GTV in the workshop.

Like many, I only let Allitalia do the Main Alfa work :)

Cheers

Colin

It was a while ago now but think it was about £45 a wheel (not including tyre fitting). They normally have prices on their website.

Not sure about the courtesy car, we only live a few miles away so have never needed one.

As they are spoken of so highly here my Mito went into Allitalia for a service a couple of weeks ago. Great place, and an 'interesting history' outside :D

Going back in tomorrow for a new heater control unit as my temperature control knob just fell off the week before it was going in for the service :wow:

A & M Conversions

Speak to Antonio, he used to be one of the mechanics at ES Jones Alfa in Dobshill and has all of the Alfa specific tools that are required. He also drives a 159, nuff said.

He did a good job on the Cam Belt, Variator, Water Pump, upper and lower wishbones and Tie rods on our 147. Prices are reasonable.

The garage is primarily marketed as Vauxhall Opel but he has a lot of Alfas going through there and knows the cars intimately.

The Garage is based in Garden City, just next to Queensferry.

Highly recommended.

Pandi motors in Tregarth are very good. Not an Alfa specialist but they are interested, honest and fair. Did my timing belt, wishbones and replaced brake pipes. Good guys.

Any service areas in Deeside?

Hi ! My first post - just moved to Hawarden. I thought I originally saw an Alfa service centre near Saltney - si there one ?

thanks!

Not aware of one in Saltney, ES Jones were the one I remember in the area and they were based in Dobshill but they went a while ago. AllItalia is further out towards Wrexham and they have a good reputation, a few people I know say they're very good.

If you're Hawarden based it's no more than a 5-10 minute drive to A & M conversions in Garden City, I had a struggle finding anywhere to take our 147 when I bought it and found out about A & M by coincidence, turns out that the mechanic my Father-In-Law uses worked on the Hyundai side of ES Jones and pointed us at Antonio.

Best of luck whichever you choose.

I took my 145 to Howard at Allitalia. I even got a discount as there was so much welding :readit: Fantastic job they did as well.
