Default Alfa Service

Hi All,
I've just had my 156 Sportswagon 36K service carried out and it appears that
Alfa are really trying to improve their aftercare at last.
I was sent a nice little Alfa post card confirming that my car was booked
for a service.
The gave me a litre of Magnatec oil with disposable gloves, hand cleaning
wipes and oil filler cardboard tubes ! ( I paid for the oil as part of the
service ! )
However it shows that Alfa are trying to improve, and get over these company
car drivers who will not buy a bit of oil between services to look after
there cars.
I also set my heart on a GT that was in the showroom. Now all I have to do
is get my partner to just walk past one day when shopping and get her to do
the same, but think its her idea to get one !

For info service come in at £450 , which included replacement of veriator
( under warranty except labour ), exhaust manifold bracket £75.00 and some
wiper blades. I don't know how that compare on price with other ?

Anyway car runs like a dream, well done Northgate at Canterbury for your
improvement.

Len

Hey Len

Out of interest, what was the oil they gave you? They gave me Castrol
Performance for the V6, the specs of which I am not sure of (whether it's
semi-synth etc)...

Hi Len

I agree, Northgate seem to have improved a lot since the Fiat side moved to
a separate site. The Alfa side seems to have more fitters and be better
organised.

The oil they gave was Magnatec 10 40w.

The latest thing is today I had a call from a customer service company
wanting to know my opinions on the service etc that I received to enable
Alfa to improve in the future !
