Why not announce it as a fait accompli, and laugh as the importers have to come to the party or look like complete fools.

What are Sime Darby going to do? "That is incorrect!  There is no Alfa dealer in Brisbane, and no official service agent!"  8)

Sure not a dealer as listed on the Alfa Australia site; however the Newstead shop appears the same as it was under the "official" list, with new Alfas on display and serviceing only new Alfas.

There was a small Sime Darby sign at the drive in entrance. Their site includes Alfa as one of their brands they represent but no longer mentions the Newstead shop as they did a few weeks back.
As mentioned before, they took over the dealership in September 2017.

Just rang a couple of Dealership numbers I had stored in my phone. The service manager's number (Brian) took me to Metricon homes.
The land line number took me to the Ferrari dealership. She said Brian no longer works for us. We are doing service for Alfa here, but not sales.

So is the Newstead showroom still operating for sales?
If so, under what ownership - Simes Darby?
I think Brian had earlier worked for Euromarque in Wickham Street.

LMM Holdings, a subsidiary of Sime Darby Motors seem still to be operating Brisbane Alfa Romeo and appear to control the distribution of other brands like BMW, Mini, Ferrari, Rolls Royce and even Volvo in Brisbane.

All external Alfa signage now removed from the Newstead premises with some inside, with a Giulia displayed.
Still a Syme Darby notice on the door. Premises set up now with a magnificent two-door Rolls Royce on the floor and towards the service area, Ferraris and BMW.

So basically, no true Alfa Dealership in Brisbane.

So sad and embarrassing.
