Re: alfa section

the non fiat section will turn into what ever is posted, so if you post loads of alfa tech questions in it then that is what it will be used for the most

Until then I guess you should use https://www.fiatforum.com/other-fiats/

Re: alfa section

Fiat form (as already has been mentioned) should be as it says FIAT.

Theres plenty of decent alfa sites/forums & lets not forget Alfa are trying to distant themselves from Fiat....they even demand seperate seating for fiat/alfa customers in garages!!! Fiat customers get paper cups while alfa demand their customers get crockery...no wonder dealers are dumping alfa!

Re: alfa section

I wouldn't be surprised if Alfa withdraw from UK in 5 years or so,they are alienating themselves from garages by demanding too much (like 4 new courtesy cars of which one must not be a 147) warranty work has to be authorised beforehand.......I understand that alfa are trying to 'raise their image' but why does a customer pay 13-15 per hour more than a fiat owner when the same tech is working on both fiat & alfa cars at multi franchise garages

Re: alfa section

I agreed 100% with the non fiat section but my opinion is that is where non fiats go. I know its an alfa but we have to put a limit on this. What about Iveco etc??? It can just go on forever.

Re: alfa section

I kind agree with Sammi on this - we have a non fiat section which is where everything non fiat goes. Even though they are related, they are a different car - thus I think it's better we keep it how it is ...

Re: alfa section

Its a tough one as Alfa are part of Fiat it would be an idea to create an Alfa section, however if someone wants questions answered on an Alfa where better than an Alfa specific forum? I would have thought you would get your answers much quicker there?

Re: alfa section

I reckon Ben and Sammi are right; this a Fiat forum not an alfa forum. Alfa might be owned by the Fiat group but fundamentally this forum exists to discuss Fiat manufacturered and branded cars. If you want to specifically discuss Alfa there is a thriving community already at http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum
