Re: west midlands garages

Try Bostons at Milford and Stafford mate, well worth a try, friendly helpful people, unlike your local Wolverhampton dealer!
I turned up there for a test drive at 10:30am and eventually the salesman put his magazine down and told me "oh sorry the car won't be here till around 12,"
No phone call to tell me not to have a wasted journey!! too much smoked glass and chrome corporate bull*****!!!!!instead of old fashioned customer care.

Re: west midlands garages

If you want a real specialist, there's Tanc Barratt at Callow Hill near Kidderminster (http://www.tancbarratt.co.uk/). Specialists in Integrales, but also know their FIAT and Alfa cousins. Worth a visit just to drool over the assorted Integrales. WAD (http://www.wad-alfaromeo.co.uk) are an established Italian car specialist in Wolverhampton and worth a punt. TJ Vickers the FIAT dealer in Telford have looked after my Lancia Ypsilon pretty well so far and I've heard good things about Milford's in Stafford.

There is a Fiat Specialist in Cato Street North, Birminghman. They do repairs plus they break them. They are called Fiat Base. I'll post the number for you later.

Re: west midlands garages

Carstins at Berkswell are a good approved specialist fiat servicer and have done us well. They are actually a Subaru/Isuzu dealer but do sell new fiats to order aswell.

They do all our Fiats.

The bonus is they are right next to Berkswell train station with direct links to New Street and Coventry.
