And for those who don't know, they are also selling up. Well, so the for sale sign said last time I dropped in there. So if someone wants to get into Alfa spares, there's a lot of spares there to sort though!

Ah there you go, good news! they've always been the best place for parts IMO. Sometimes it seems they are the only place that doesn't charge extra because you said Alfa...

And you won't have to replace the fillings in your teeth or put new wheel bearings in the car, Colin.
