Service for Fiat Tipo under warranty

Hello there guys,
In May of this year, I bought my first car: a used March 2017 Fiat Tipo Estate 1.4 l engine manual gearbox. Mileage was 12000.
It now has 18000 miles on the clock, runs well, no problems.
I want to bring it in for a service and Fiat in London Battersea quoted me 451.
Do I have to get the car serviced at Fiat so that the warrant isn't invalidated or can I go elsewhere?
Any help would be great.

Hi.
You just need a VAT registered garage to use branded parts.

Personally.. I would look for an Alfa ..or FIAT Specialist garage.

They will use GENUINE Fiat parts.
Especially lubricants....

Often multifranchise dealers DO NOT..

Why I no longer go to FIAT franchised places
