Dealership
« Reply #30 on: August 17, 2019, 05:31:53 PM »
I guess there hasn’t been since Newstead was listed on the Alfa website. Maybe Sime Darby takes its place just as well. They call it a ‘collaboration’ with A/R and ‘acquired’ the dealership from the then A/R dealership in Sep 2017. I heard Alfa service was done at the Ferrari centre (?)
Seems to be a lot of transition taking place.

I'm not surprised dealers are disappearing.

I just had a look at the V-facts Car Sales figures for July 2019.

Alfa Romeo nationally only sold 56 vehicles and are currently 43.4% down year to date.  :o

So basically, no true Alfa Dealership in Brisbane.

So sad and embarrassing.

So now at Newstead; no external Alfa signage. Instead, Rolls Royce!!! Three “Rollers” on the floor as well as an assortment of Ferrari’s, Mercs etc.
Still some internal signage for Fiat/Alfa (no cars) and an A4 size Sime Darby sign on a window.

Is the Newstead (Sime Darby) shop still stocking Alfa? They say they’re still servicing new Alfa’s.
Not surprising Alfa re-establishing a dealership in Brisbane again. The market is very changeable these days. Alfa staying in the game for the foreseeable with big changes at the top re FCA/Peugeot.

You can buy from either the Gold Coast or Sunshine Coast dealerships, don't know if either would have a Giulia QV in stock or not, you'd have to call them.

You want the full fat performance Tesla 3

and run out of battery just as your coming into your street . . . . .  ;)

(I kid, I kid)  ;D ;D

Whilst I applaud the idea of electric cars they are utterly useless until someone can come up with one that you literally just plug into a 240 socket to charge. A recent client has a Tesla that parks in his work place garage, the owner needed the body corporate to vote and approve the installation of a charging station for it  . . . . . they voted no.

And yes, right next to where he parks is a 240v outlet.  ::)

By the way, what would be the cost of electricity for a full recharge?
