hiya elofan and welcome to AO.....i bought my lovely mito QV from budgens in shrewsbury, well worth the journey as i had an excellent deal, ali.c bought his mito QV there too....

we had already owned a 95bhp mito bought form Lookers in Cardiff.....sales dept is ok tho no deals available and very rigid on finance, in fact two guys on here have lost their mitos due to the finance not being sorted adequately, both finding out on the day they were gonna pick the cars up....one of them also went to Budgens and got an excellent deal.

as for servicing...DO NOT go anywhere near Lookers, they are legendary in their ineptness, absolutely useless.....my first mito was in and out of there for months with various problems, they dont ring you, theres no courtesy cars available which is a bind if you are stuck in Cardiff for the day, thye take ages to do the work etc etc

i use LC Motors in newport and so do a few others in the welsh lounge, they are highly professional, are a fiat dealership, love alfas, most of the staff own one, very knowledgeable and wont rip you off.....excellent.

hope this helps and sorry for being a bit biased but some of us have had neagtive dealings with Lookers and have no confidence in them.

Baz...i havnt had any major probs with anything on babe2, shes been awesum, had a recall on headlights and a few niggly things that were not major, my first one was horrendous, but dont listen to all the negatives, my fab QV makes me smile, is a pleasure to drive and gets loads of attention....go for it hun....newport isnt that far away...i would travel to get the best care for my babe2 no probs....:)

oh and we have monthly meets in swansea, either verdis or langland brasserie so if you wanna come along even tho you havnt got an alfa yet you will be very welcome, the next one is 18th sept at 10.30am at verdis.....come and have a goss and a look at mine and alis mitos..you will change your mind about having one then..you'll want one even more:)

LC's dont actually sell alfas but they can get one for you if you know what you want and it seems you do, give them a ring and speak to Craig 01633 259892 and he can put you in touch with the sales guy, i wll prob get my next alfa from them....

lc motors - Google Search

link to budgens too.....its a lovely drive there if you go thru ross and leominster etc....worth the drive:)
