Its not cost its capacity.....as you know, I have a 610 that needs work..... just bought a dry storage bag for it as I don't think its happening soon...in the UK anyway.
If you could increase capacity, there wouldn't be a gap in the market. All the GTAs and 610s are at the point where they need something doing. Too many cars chasing too few specialists.
Transport to Bulgaria is bound to close the gap on anything less than Eden project sized work...isn't it?? Spares are the same cost anyway. The perceived risk of having a car repaired out there will put most people off. I think the UK alpine specialists can relax.
