Title: Victorian Alfa Specialist Workshops
Post by: Evan Bottcher on March 18, 2010, 02:19:04 PM
Looking for service or repair or parts for your Alfa in Victoria?  Here's a link to the list of club sponsors:

Please consider ringing one of these club supporters.

cheers,
Evan.

The Club has support and sponsorship by several well known sponsors.  Their efforts and knowledge is significant to local Alfisti.

To note here is the usual club link   http://www.alfaclubvic.org.au/content/view/20/33/ (http://www.alfaclubvic.org.au/content/view/20/33/)

However one future option that may be taken is in creating a service directory where the club can develop contacts with other Alfa Workshops on a needs basis. 

I am sure that there are other Alfa Specialists in Box Hill, Thomastown and Dandenong but we have never found a specialist in the West  ?

Does someone have another workshop names to offer ?

Rankins Panels (Bayswater) do a bit of work on Alfas and are well known to Monza Motors etc.

Extreme Body Repairs (Dandenong) are well know in 900 series and concorso circles.

We have 'Il Bolide Rosso' in High Street Thornbury who has requested to advertise and become a club sponsor.  The Club had a restoration night there a few months ago.

Alfa Parts in Moorabbin has expressed interest in getting involved with the club.  I think he has the older Alfetta GT's and 90's there.

This is great, thanks. I have one last door to remove (have a few bolts to drill) and then will be taking them and some other bits to someone. Thanks.

Milanos has previously gone thru a bit of change.

The proprietor is interested in getting involved with the club again - especially with the growing use of the internet for sales.

Same with Donini Motors in Caulfield/Malvern East.

Also same with Arbarth Motors in South Melbourne.

Can not find one in the western suburbs.

I swear by Beninca's.

http://www.beninca.com.au/

They are very knowledgeable, trustworthy and mild-mannered. They are patient and very skilled. They don't trumpet themselves around - they have been good at what they do a long, long time!! I trust my GTV2000 there no question. I've tried some other places - one ripped me off $1000 and the other left with me failed brakes. The best thing about Beninca's is their depth of knowledge of HOW Alfa's work - you have to have that experience, as they are quirky in some ways. Good luck.  :)

a big +1 goes to Monza Motors (Alfpa Repairs) at Bayswater.
Just before Christmas, I was experiencing a long brake pedal in the 159. It was also chewing brake fluid. Took it to Hugh, who in less than 5 minutes diagnosed the problem. The brake fluid line from the reservoir to the master cylinder had been rubbing on an air-conditioning line, and a small hole had developed (a fault at time of manufacture).
Above and beyond the call-of-duty, Hugh liaised with the not-so-helpful people at my warranty company (the car being second hand, and coming with a 3 year extended warranty from the dealer) and obtained authorisation for the works to be done under warranty - thus not costing me a cent.
Mick was great with the repair as he also put an extra piece of tubing around where the new brake fluid line was close to the air-conditioning line - to protect the brake fluid line so that the issue wouldn't arise again. The work was done on the 23rd of December, and I was very pleased to have the car back before Christmas. Potsie

Hi all,

Seeing as this thread refers to recommendations for servicing places, I thought I'd post this here.

I'm set to pick up my first Alfa tomorrow, a 2014 Giulietta JTDM2.0 that I picked up for a decent price, and I was wanting to perhaps have some cosmetic changes done on the interior, namely with the dashboard, and possibly a sunroof.

I'd want to have this done factory, so to speak. I did a search through the forums, but couldn't see anything on fitting factory options to a used Alfa.

How can you find out what options are available, and where would you take the car to have it done?

Thank you.

Hey guys, can anyone recommend a classic car panel beater to repair an Alfa 105 Veloce. I am after preferably a semi retired panel beater that can work out of a workshop based in Chadstone Melbourne or their place. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated

In the search for a new mechanic I  tried https://www.facebook.com/antoniosautoservice  in Thomastown.  Love his clean spacious set-up, including a short black served up by his partner from a real cafe espresso machine!

What is it with Thomastown that has 4 Alfa Romeo service shops?  Must be because of the number of Alfas I see in Nillumbik Shire

Hi Guys, the link on the first post of this thread is supposed to be a list of Club sponsors. That's not what opens up when I click on the links.
It turns out to be a membership application form.
Im looking for an independent Alfa specialist in the Doncaster area. I have a Giulietta I would like to have a pre-purchase inspection carried out on, and the owner doesn't want to go very far from home.

Cheers
Rob

+1 for Sebastiano!  I just love looking at the collection of racing photos from the old country outside the office.
