Have just ordered a couple of things from Centreline Alfa in the USA.

And I have to say, their service is very average and their shipping costs are OUTRAGEOUS!!

2 x wiper arms, sump plug, diff plug and the spongey air socks for the Webers... USD$97 for shipping!!

I normally buy all my 105 parts from England, I can order on 8pm Monday night have them arrive 8am Thursday morning at my door for around $20 shipping!! That's literally half way around the world!!

Can't get stuff from the USA- across the pacific- in less than 2 weeks and at ridiculous prices!! The USA really needs to lift it's game.

This is the last time I will order from Centreline.

My recommendation: If you are looking for 105/115 parts, always try Classic Alfa and Alfaholics in the UK first. Bet you it will be cheaper and quicker than the USA... even if you are in the USA!!

Sorry you had a bad experience - I'm not associated with Centerline but I've found them good to deal with.

The UK suppliers are very well regarded and I've had friends on the East Coast get parts as quickly as from inside the US.

What sort of shape is your GTV in?
