Hi guys I'm wondering if you can help me ive been advised to comment on this section as I wrote in the wrong one. I am wanting to take my Alfa Giulietta for a full service and been ringing around to get some quotes and a garage called Italia Tec Ltd was far by the cheapest I just wondered if anyone had been there to know what there like? He said all genuine parts and oils will be used and was working out alot cheaper in price

Order your own service items, including oil, from somewhere like Euro Car Parts, and take the lot to a local garage you've used before and trust. You don't need a specialist.

Not heard of them (Italia Tec Ltd ) so can't comment. Have had plenty of services carried out by AlfaTecnico (Alfa Romeo Specialist) and would recommend them :thumbs:

As mentioned above if its only a service buy the parts you need and take it to a garage you have used before - I have just had a service and Cam Belts done on 2 2011 G's. Brought all the parts myself from - https://www.shop4parts.co.uk/ Can't fault them for delivery speed and price, plus we get a discount for being an AO member, if you contact - http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/members/scgt.html then should be able to give it to you, I am not going to put up on public posting as don't want the code abused and we lose the discount.

If you buy all the parts yourself, do you just ring the garage and ask for a quote for labor costs and charges, then they'll stamp the book as if a normal service has been carried out, or do they have to perform a standard proceedure to get the 'stamp of approval'?

Also if you where to buy say glow plugs, brake pads, oil and filter, new power steering reservoir and fluid, brake fluid, air and pollen filter, what do you reckon they'll charge for the labor, 1-3 hours worth? £80-90 reasonable?

The garage I just used, stamped my service book but hand wrote Customer supplied Parts and along with the receipt of cost they also wrote what they had done and 'customer supplied part' I have attached altogether along with the invoice for the parts used, so people can see what parts and where from.

Cost wise most garages around by me are around the £50-60 an hours mark. I am lucky some friends are mechanics so don't charge me the full rate

Well after ringing and finding price costs out I went to italia tec in the end who isnt based far from Alfa Tecnico and they was very helpful shown me everything down to the parts and oils which was all genuine very pleased with the work and outstanding on pricing which worked out considerably cheaper. I rang and quoted Alfa Tecnico after hearing people's reviews and worked out more expensive by quite a bit. Thank you all for your help anyway
