Jamie Porter Ltd - same as Fiat Workshop and Alfa Workshop
Pros
  • Pleasant to deal with
  • Good value for money
  • Work appears to be done to a high standard
  • Lots of lovely Alfa 4Cs to drool over :)
Cons
  • Very busy, so you need to book well in advance
  • Satnav not so good at finding it
First time at Jamie Porter Ltd, I'd been put off Alfa specialists by some bad experiences with a certain Alfa company near Dunstable, but I'd heard good things about Jamie Porter Ltd on here (unlike on a certain Alfa-based website which did a hatchet job on them) so figured it was worth a try, esp as the main job I needed done was the cambelt on my Abarth, and that's the same engine as the turbo Mito and modern Giulietta.

Price was very good for a cambelt change (I couldn't have done it much cheaper myself, once I'd bought the locking tools) and whilst I was there I got the n/s/f wheel bearing changed, and most of a 36k service done (less the brakes / coolant, since I did those bits a few months back).

Ben was very friendly via email (unlike the owner of that other Alfa specialist, grumpy old so and so), and was happy to do a customized service, and change the wheel bearing even though it didn't appear to need doing; he phoned to say "Are you sure you want this done?" when the car was in, but I knew there was quite a bit of play in it, so got it done anyway. Nice of him to check though.
