Fiat/Alfa Specialist in Mid Bucks...

Hi, my name is Paul.

I started AforAlfa 5 years ago to specialise in Italian cars, having done my time working for another specialist learning my trade.
I have a small workshop in Aylesbury, Bucks, i can't offer the big beautiful tiled workshop, and a leather clad waiting room, but i can offer a friendly welcome and a cuppa. I am also going to be getting a courtesy car on board soon, maybe a nice punto.

It has been a poor show of Fiats coming through my doors over the years, and i thought i'd finally get round to doing something about that!

What i have been offering to my customers for 5 years is a promise of the best prices on cambelt changes, where the customer knows what they are getting, and exactly what they are paying, none of this "err, um, it could be this price or that". Great prices on servicing, using OE parts as much as possible, and great prices on repairs. I try to keep the customer informed at all times if a car is spending some time with me, and only work that is authorised is done.

So, here i am trying to win some of you over, let me get some prices on the page! I've been busy getting some prices sorted out today, and i will add to this list over the coming days when i get my full price list from my supplier.

I will start by saying that, although these prices are cheap, please be assured the job is done correctly, with timing blocks where needed. Seeing tip ex on cam covers makes me shudder, usually because i am touching a badly running car, with tip ex on the cam cover! :lol:

1.1/1.2 8v (panda, punto etc) cambelt replacement £60 (£55 to club members)
including OE belt kit,fitting and VAT.

1.2/1.4 16v (panda/punto etc) cambelt replacement £135 (£130 to club members)
Including O.E belt kit, fitting and VAT.

1.6 16v (Bravo/stilo etc) cambelt replacement £155 (£150 to club members)
Including O.E belt kit, fitting and VAT.

1.8 16v (barchetta/bravo etc) cambelt replacement £150 (£145 to club members)Including O.E belt kit, fitting and VAT.

20vt/20v (coupe etc) cambelt replacement £305 (£295 to club members)
Including O.E belt kit, balance belt and tensioner, fitting and VAT.

1.9/2.4 JTD (punto/marea etc) Cambelt replacement, £205 (£200 to club members)

Mini service, including oil and filter(O.E) change check lights, levels, pressures, lube door hinges, quick lookover, £55 (£50 to club members)

So, I do ask how these prices grab you all and would really appreciate your feedback.

To attain member prices, please contact me through pm system on here.

I can be contacted on 07745233472, 01442827477 (please leave a message) or enquiries@aforalfa.co.uk

Thanks for reading, Paul.

Re: Fiat/Alfa Specialist in Mid Bucks...

Can you do/what would you charge for a 36,000 mile service on a new Fiat 500 1.4? Mines coming up in 5k miles and I'm not taking it to the stealers to get ripped off.

Re: Fiat/Alfa Specialist in Mid Bucks...

Hi there got a Grande punto in need of a 18000 miles/12 month service within the next 3 months and was wondering what price you would do that at. I only live just outside of aylesbury so would be useful

Thanks

Wow, didn't realise you did Fiats too. You can be sure to see my Punto darkening your doors sooner or later, that's if Duncan will get his cars out of the way first!

Re: Fiat/Alfa Specialist in Mid Bucks...

Awesome prices. I have a Panda 100HP that really needs to get its 2nd service done asap.

Aylesbury not that far from Northampton, depending on the cost saving compared to Motorvogue. I presume I can kill some time for a few hours lol

Can I have the NET price please?

NET price is as you see, I'm not VAT registered, another way i keep prices low

We can fit you in as soon as Wednesday if you need it.
