Pre-purchase inspection - Sydney
« on: July 14, 2010, 11:18:39 AM »
G'day all,

Hoping you could point me in the right direction for alpha specialist who undertakes thorough inspections on Alpha's??

I'm currently in negotiations with a dealership on a 2005 156 JTS Selespeed Wagon. The dealership is located on Sydney's Northern Beaches, however an alpha specialist anywhere within Sydney is no problem. In their effort to convince how mechanically sound the vehicle is, the dealer has offered to pay for the inspection - won't complian about that.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi,
Have a look at the NSW AROCA site and click on the General Information>Classifieds ..... There you will find club sponsors who are Alfa experts.

A nearby club member, alfa expert, and sponsor is Rob at Manning Motors in Brookvale

Good luck with your purchase

Manning Motors are at Brookvale, so very close, talk to Robert. If you want to have it inspected by an Alfa dealer service department, I can recommend Mario at Thomson Alfa.

Alfamotive in marrickville.
that way you get to drive the car and see if the selespeed plays up as they usually start playing up after half about to an hour of driving!

good luck! and enjoy it if you buy it.  :)
