Just thought I'd post this up to start off a list of recommendations for taking your Alfa to, for service/maintenance and other, in the SE only region.

This is designed to help any new Alfa Owners and existing on what's available in our area.

I recommend it's kept factual, as per example:-

Name of Company
Address Location
Telephone
Website

Details of any offers?
What services are offered?
General experience and why you go there?

You can also post local parts places, tyre shops, wheel refurbishment, detailing, body shops and so on..

Share the knowledge of where you go in the region to help your fellow Alfisti :thumbs:

Thanks Guys & Girls...

W – Go Italia - Alfa Romeo & Fiat Specialist, Kent

I have been taking my car to Jamie since 2010 for basically everything that needs doing. Service, Maintenance and Upgrades. He has the Main Dealer AlfaDiag system and is a fully qualified Alfa Romeo & Fiat Master Technician. Highly recommended and used by a number of people on this forum.

Formula One AutoCentre's
These are located all over the UK and you can find your nearest branch at www.f1autocentres.co.uk/findacentre.php

If you pre-pay your tyres online then the fitted price is much cheaper than any where else I have used in the past. Always a good range to choose from and the centre in Maidstone is very good - Tom (Branch Manager) is always very helpful and your car is well looked after. They also have a Hunter 4-wheel alignment and their Premium Balance makes a big difference.

Lepsons of Gillingham
The best place in the SE for wheel refurbishment - not the cheapest, but definately the best!

Power Speed in Ashford
Flanners1 recommended this place for Custom Exhaust Work - His GTV V6 does sound really awesome with a custom system from these guys. www.powerspeed.co.uk

I am planning to get down there for some revised exhaust work on the mid-section.

Pro-Tyre in Sittingbourne
National company, but the outlet on the Eurolink Estate in Sittingbourne is very good.
I normally deal with Chris when I go down there and he is very knowledgeable on what works best on various models of car. He is a total Petrol Head with a very modified Audi S4 Avant with numerous Lambo Mods! Very good 4-wheel alignment system and just had the GTV done there for £60.00. He also did me a price match on x4 GoodYear Eagle F1's for the TT (price matched to F1 AutoCentre). Again, your car is well looked after and good team of guys over there.

SDR Autos in Wadhurst
Not had personal use of these Guys, but I know they have a very good reputation down in East Sussex. Some of the Guys that come out on some of the Events I host, take their Alfa's in for Service and Maintenance, and have had good experience. They also Sell Alfa's as well and have some nice examples on offer.

I second Mitch's recommendation of Ian Stamper of Autobritalia, Dunkirk for those in East Kent. Very knowledgeable and careful, especially for the older Alfa Romeos, 1970s through to 156 era.


Also Northgate Alfa Romeo in Canterbury are excellent, although Alfa Romeo dealer prices...

SDR did my belt a couple of months ago, they did a good deal on the price too. Did an oil and filter change and metal impeller water pump at the same time. Luke, is the guy to talk to.

I was pleased with the service and will use them again - straight dealing - no BS just what you want in these days of the aforementioned!:thumbup::thumbup:

Might be a bit of a schlep for you, but my local is Alfaaid in Maidenhead. I do most of my own spannering, but they look after Mrs rxes 159 very well, and are very helpful at tracking stuff down. Probably not the cheapest, but I've never had cause to quibble. The banter is good, and the MOTs are like a lesson on Alfa illnesses....

Autolusso in Houghton Regis. Took my dead Brera 2.2jts to them last week. Ned kept me informed of problem and potential fixes and prices throughout with pictures of problems. Going back for oil change after 500 mile run in of rebuilt engine. Highly recommend them and I live in Kent so a nice trek round M25.
