Exclamation Alfa Romeo repair shops in LA

Hey everybody, I just got a 93 Spider and I live in Downtown LA. I 'm looking for a good repair shop close by. Any suggestions?

Repair shops

Come over the hill to Santos repair in Northridge. He's open on Saturdays. 818 701 1614.

Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.[FONT=Trebuchet MS][/FONT]

Closer to downtown is:

Alfa Only
3422 Glendale Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA
323-662-3916

Both places are reliable Alfa repair shops.

Sounds like something you should drive to the AROSC Holiday Party, Saturday Dec 11.
Contact AROSC for directions.

Good luck

If I had to choose a shop close to where you are, I'd go with Bill Werner @ Alfa Only 323-662-3916.

Santos has been working on my 1974 spider for 15 years. they are fair and know Alfas. On my car they have done at least the following..
replace cracked bell housing
replaced entire front end bushings, replaced springs, added koni shocks, completely re-did the brakes including new rotors, repaired the clutch, tuned my spica injection pump (more than once), fixed my reverse lights, removed my original steering wheel, replaced the original shift boot with a new leather one, got my car to pass smog for the last 4 times, replaced all 4 wheel bearings, fixed my heater and if i were to look back at my records there is probally another dozen things they have done for my car. wow i just realized i have way more invested into my car than i could ever sell it for. good thing im not selling!

Los Angeles area Alfa garages

Just to dust off this thread:

Alfa Italia, Burbank
Omega Motorsports, Culver City
Santo's Italina Car Service, Northridge
Alfa Only, RIP
John's Alfa Romance, Los Angeles

Has any other Alfa Los Angeles area shops started in the last ten years?

Anyone here know about a mobile alfa repairman that travels to your house to do minor repairs. I had a guy last year replace my starter at home and I lost his number.

I just got to my Grandparents house in Newport Beach and had a hellish drive on the 10/405 from Malibu to Newport through evening traffic and stalled out about 8 times. Luckily it started right back up again ('76 spider SPICA) but I really need to have it checked out as I'm not sure if it is an ignition or fuel system issue before I head back up to the Bay Area. Are there any good Alfa shops or guys closer to newport Beach??
