    Hi Phil, Thanks for taking the time to leave me a review and 5 stars much appreciated. A retro classic Astra i took in part exchange with very low mileage sold at the right price to the right family. Glad it fits the bill for your wife and happy to sell a vehicle locally with my usual RAC warranty and Breakdown cover peace of mind on a budget runner for the future. Great to meet you and your family if you need me in the future or fancy a brew just give me a call. All the best Matthew True Alfa

    A great guy to deal with. Really knows his Alfa Romeos, and bought with peace of mind knowing I had 12month MOT and warranty. No issues with car, just a pleasure to drive. Very happy with my purchase.

    Hi Jonny , Thanks for your 5 star review and kind words. It was a lovely 159 sportwagon with a great service history and in lovely unmolested condition. Being quite rare to find in any condition i struggle to replace such lovely examples with the age of the 159 now but always try my hardest to keep my stock to my high standards. Great to here you have been trouble free and are enjoying your new Alfa. Great to meet you , a friendly down to earth gentleman, thanks for you business.Happy Alfa ,All the best ,Matthew.

    Happy customer

    By Jonathan W on 16 November 2018 | Verified purchase

    I bought a Toyota Celica from Matthew in October. Top quality car in great condition...same as the service from Matthew. Not the cheapest Celica on the market but Matthew seems to deal only in car from the better end, if you know what I mean. I wanted the best Celica I could find and I'm glad I paid a little extra for the one from Matthew. I got a chance to give the car a proper test drive before buying which you don't get with most dealers. I've done 2,000 in the car in 6 weeks with no issues at all: the car is spot on. The RAC did have a slight admin problem with the 6 months warranty cover (RAC's problem, not Matthews) but Matthew help sort that out in a matter of minutes. In my book, the quality of an independent dealer shows up in the after sales help they give: top marks Matthew. Would I buy again from Matthew and True Alfa? Yes. Will I be ringing Matthew when I want an Alfa next year? of course I will. Cheers Matthew and all the best.

    Hi Jonathan, Thanks for the great review and 5 stars its much appreciated. It took us a while but we got there in the end and you ended up with a great limited edition example of the iconic Toyota Celica that was in fantastic condition with a proper service history, which was just what you were looking for. A pleasure to meet both you and your farther at first point of sale , i am pleased you are happy with your purchase and my service as a motor trader. If your do think of swapping into an Alfa next year i would be happy to trade the Celica back in . All the best and thanks for your business , Matthew

    True alfa have been a pleasure to deal with.

    By Graham S on 08 November 2018 | Verified purchase

    Matthew at True Alfa has been great to deal with in my purchase of a Panda 4x4 - he was very fair when dealing with a part exchange and when the MOT gave advisories for new brake pads on the new car he made sure these were replaced first before I took the car. He also provided extra peace of mind with a 6 month RAC warranty and 12 month breakdown cover as standard. He has been a pleasure to deal with in aftersales as well as when I have had a small issue with the start stop system he advised he would arrange for a specialist fiat garage to fix. I would recommend buying a car from True Alfa to anyone in the future.

    My first Alfa Romeo - my new passion...

    By Ben C on 16 October 2018 | Verified purchase

    Having found my car through the AutoTrader app, I made contact with Matthew and everything was easy from that point onwards. The vehicle was precisely as listed, a real beauty. I was pointed in the direction of a local specialist for aftercare, and appreciated the set of mats and the fact that the guy I shook hands with was someone who really knows the vehicle. Overall, a great experience.

    The car was as it stated. The owner of the car sales knew his cars. A great experience. The place was a bit difficult to find but we met up eventually. And I bought the car.

    Jaguar S Type purchase - Amazing experience!

    By Mark B on 05 September 2018 | Verified purchase

    I cannot recommend Matthew of True Alfa enough. It was an absolute pleasure to deal with him. He is the most helpful, honest and down to earth motor trader I have met. I have bought many cars in the past, some being prestige and never have I had such a first class experience. In my opinion he went above and beyond to ensure the car was as perfect as he could make it. I am absolutely delighted with the car and I would not hesitate to recommend Matthew or buy from him again. I cannot speak highly enough of him. Thank you Matthew.

    Hi Mark, First of all even though you didn't buy an Alfa from myself its was a pleasure to meet such a charismatic,genuine and friendly gentleman with a lovely wife. Thanks for the great 5 star review and really glad you were impressed and happy with my service which i always give 100% too at any level and vehicle. The Jaguar you purchased was a lovely example with a few minor niggles due to age but were all rectified for collection even though its did cost me a pound or two but all worth it for a happy customer who was ultimately a Jaguar Gent. If you ever fancy an Alfa to go with your Ferrari you know were i am. All the best to you and your wife. Thanks for your business, Matthew

    159 Sportswagon

    By Richard P on 29 July 2018 | Verified purchase

    I had been thinking about an Alfa as my next car for some time and as I need an estate, a 159 Sportswagon for sale at True Alfa caught my attention. Matthew is a true car-man (we shared stories of our classic cars), very knowledgeable and I was impressed with his attention to detail, including turning up with a new set of car mats when I arrived to pick up the car. The fresh service , Mot and warranty on purchase give you peace of mind, and the newly refurbished alloy wheels certainly make the car stand out. Matthew generously gave me a trade-in on my well-used old car. The 80 mile drive home certainly found a smile on my face and I look forward to many happy Alfa miles! Richard

    Hi Richard, Thanks for you 5 star review and fantastic feed back. It was very nice to meet you and i was happy to prepare the Alfa sportwagon for you to my usual high standard with refurbishing the alloys which as you stated does make a big impact and just finishes the look off. Even though my love for the Italian shines through we both had a place in our hearts for some retro classic Fords of which your 2.8 Capri looked and sounded a really good example. If you need any help or information in the future please let me know. Great to deal with yourself and all the best. Happy Alfa, Matthew

    Alfa Brera

    By Jonathan G on 22 July 2018 | Verified purchase

    I was looking for a quality used Alfa from a specialist dealer within reasonable distance from home. I came across "The Alfa Man" at True Alfa. You can't fake that amount of enthusiasm! I've only had the Brera a few days but so far it all seems fine. I hope there are no serious issues but I'm fairly sure they would be happy to sort them out if there was. The 12 month no advisory MOT is great and the RAC support reassuring. All in all a good experience.

    Great service and aftersales experience

    By Tim B on 17 July 2018 | Verified purchase

    I spent a long time looking for the right spec GTV with an impeccable service history and True Alfa had exactly what I was looking for. I travelled from the South Coast to Rochdale (6 hours!) and Matthew picked me up from the station. The car had been nicely prepped with replacement brake discs and pads as well as a fresh MOT with no advisories. Additionally , Matthew provided an RAC Warranty with breakdown cover included. On the drive home, it became apparent that there was an issue with the front suspension, so I took it to a local Alfa specialist for diagnosis. Even though the warranty didn't cover fixing the steering rack, Matthew was happy to liaise with the garage and agreed to pay for the repair. Overall, a good experience and I'm happy with my lovely GTV

    Reply from True Alfa Italian Sports & Prestige Specialist on 22/07/18

    Hi Tim, Thanks for the 5 star review and fare truthful words. The GTV you purchased for the age,mileage ,service history and the added bonus of having a factory fitted Aero Kit was in fantastic condition, in one of the best color combinations Nero metallic with full red Momo Leather. I have had many customers travelling hundreds of miles purchase Alfa's i have had for sale over the years and putting there trust in myself as an Alfa specialist to be well worth the time and travel. I have always taken my time to give a comprehensive advert description,coupled with clear HD pictures of the Alfa and all the service history i have with the Alfa. I feel this is exactly the information the customer should be presented with in order to make a good decision to purchase a 2ndhand Alfa Romeo. All this coupled with the minimum 6 months RAC warranty. I am always happy to help any customers with a truthful issue to ensure my credibility as an Alfa Specialist. All the best,Happy Alfa.Matthew
