Alfa Romeo Parts from The AlfaWorkshop
The Workshop prides itself on the quality of its service and workmanship. In order to give the level of service and reliability you require at the right price, we endeavour to get genuine parts at a discount by buying in bulk from either Alfa Romeo UK or direct from the manufacturer's factory. For example, all our oil filters are genuine parts in genuine boxes and they are approximately 20% cheaper than from an Alfa Romeo dealer.
Unfortunately on some items the genuine parts, even with our buying power, still prove to be overpriced and then we have to approach the manufacturer of the product and get the same product directly from them. An example of this would be the twin spark plug, PMR7A's which are manufactured by NGK; we could, if Alfa Romeo UK's price was excessive, buy plugs direct from NGK, this is then referred to as "original equipment". Some other original equipment suppliers are:
|Bosch||Fuel injection systems and ABS|
|TRW||Steering and suspension|
Occasionally, either because Alfa Romeo and their suppliers have stopped producing a part, or we feel there is no difference in quality between the genuine and the pattern item, and the pattern part is considerably cheaper, we will choose to use a pattern part. These could either be an exact copy of the original product or a direct replacement, for example Powerflex bushes for the rear of a 916 series GTV or Spider is a pattern part. In all cases when you contact us we will try to both meet your needs, and advise you where we think there is an advantage in using either genuine, original equipment or pattern parts. For example, if your car is in warranty, we would without exception use genuine parts as then there can then be no way that the manufacturer can claim that a defective product was the cause of a warranty claim, however if you own a series 3 Giulia spider the only way you will get the front lip spoiler is as a pattern part, as these long since finished production with Alfa Romeo.
If you specifically require any part either Genuine, Original equipment or pattern we will be pleased to try and help you get the correct product at the best possible price and our warranty is identical to Alfa Romeo's in all cases.
