I have been chatting with Dave Allen from Vospers Alfa about putting together an open day for a short while, and we have now secured a date.

Dave has recently taken over the running of the Alfa sales, having spent some time today chatting it is very clear that he is 100% committed to Alfa Romeo and providing a good service for his customers, equally as important he is Alfisti and loves the cars and the brand.

This is an opportunity for you to meet up with the guys from Vospers and see for yourself how enthusiastic they are about Alfa Romeo. In addition there will be many of the cars from the model range for you to drool over (Alfa porn as Tess calls it:lol:), even today there were a number of Mito, Giuliettas and 159's in various colours and specs. I will let Dave go into more details about this as we get closer to the time, Dave has also said he is really keen to meet up with AOers and put faces to names and become a part of AO

During the day there will a selection of italian motorbikes for those of you who are into 2 wheel exotica and there will be a show and shine....the first prize being

Use of An Alfa Romeo Giulietta for a weekend :eek::eek:


Location is Hennock Road Marsh Barton Exeter Devon EX2 8RU, starting from 10am

http://www.vospersalfaromeo.co.uk/

I would love for this to be the start of something good for AO and Vospers Alfa in the South West and the Alfa community ;)

Look forward to seeing you there on the day :thumbs:

I will have a number of cars here one of them being the MiTo with the new TCT auto box which i am sure some of you will be intrested in seeing also hoping to have a giulietta cloverleaf here ,it is in build at the min so hope it gets here before the event. Also as Jay has said if anyone has anything intresting or rare or something they want kept out of the weather i will display some owners cars in the showroom for everyone.

Really do look forward to seeing you all there

As it appears to be the first of these they have put on... I'm guessing it wont be on par with Vospers Ford plymouth's open days...

But if a success this time gives them the incentive to go bigger and better next time, I'm in :thumbs:

Then, when they go all out some time in the future, I can say 'I was there from the start'. :lol:


Ps; Dave/Jay... Perhaps a wee bit of the car park sectioned off for AO members to park together so they can show/shine their 'ordinary' Alfa's would be nice? A chance to show the crowds that when you buy an Alfa... any Alfa... you don't just buy a car, you buy a way of life.

Alan does it down here. You wouldn't want him to show you exeter chaps up... would you? ;) :p

Will do my best to try and make this, and meet some of you guys for the first time.

Being a bit cheeky, are there any discounts in place for AOers with Vospers for parts ?

No need for prizes tbh. I only used the show n shine phrase as I imagine people will give them a bit of a wipe down when they get there.

Having said that, first prize of a free v6 cambelt service would be nice... :eek: :lol:

Just seen this, and have booked in my diary. I ought to come and meet with my local dealer, so looking forward to taking this opportunity.

I don't know if you would consider my beautiful Brera Italia Independent particularly special, but I'm happy to have her on display - just no polishing!!
