Where to get my Spider serviced in Sydney?
« on: February 01, 2010, 11:47:09 AM »
I bought a year 2000 model spider T-Spark a few months back.  It's now done 6500kms since the last oil change.  I'd like to get that done and also have a few other things checked out + basically get the car checked over so I know it's all good.  My two closest options are: Alfa service centre is McCarrolls 395 Pacific Highway Artarmon NSW 2064  or I can take it to Quixspede 66-72 Pacific Hwy NORTH SYDNEY.

Does anyone have any experience with either of these guys....or recommend something better?
Any opinions on using an Alfa Sevice Centre vs an independent specialist?

I don't like being BS'd (I'm pretty mechanically competent) or being ripped off (who does!)

Thanks,


lombardi

This is a tough one-this is where i think melbourne really leaves us for dead-sydney is really rip off land for us poor alfa amici-thats why people in the know do theyr own work-i can say i did have a favourable recommendation for ALFAMOTIVE at 81 railway pde  marrickville-did a bit of work on my 166-fair price and good job-phone n0 is 95198501 and BUONA FORTUNA.

Suggest you try Arnaldo and Pino at Hornsby or Manning Motors at Brookvale depending on who is closest to you
