Another potential new owner question
« on: June 05, 2020, 11:40:01 AM »
Hi everyone. I've always wanted an Alfa Romeo of almost any model, but it never happened (many twists in life). Now I am seriously looking at a 159 . The mechanic that I had in mind and used when I had a Lancia has retired. can someone point me to a reliable Alfa mechanic in Adelaide area so I can get the two vehicles I'm considering inspected.

You can also find on the AROCA SA website  sponsors who may perform this work or find below is attached a mobile unit that can meet you at the yard or desired location. My advice before you go to this expense and effort, make sure the car has a good service history and drives well before you commit.

All 159s are solid cars and a sensible point of entry into Alfa ownership.  Let us know how you go.

Hello DNR, my suggestion for all things ALFA in Adelaide is Peter Axford at Eurosport 8362 2333, Pete is life member of AROCA SA and very experienced in all ALFA models. Check out the AROCA SA website and think about joining. Cheers and good luck, Laurie
