Brian’s Story – The AROC Affinity Partnership

Since the launch of the Alfa Romeo Owners Club Affinity Partnership, we’ve had dozens of members savings £000s on new Alfa Romeo cars, so we wanted to share just one of them to give some direct feedback on the incredible offers available.
One member, Brian Smith, was looking to buy a new Giulia recently and spotted our Affinity Partnership offer.  When he looked up the car he wanted there was certainly some disbelief at the possible savings, so he visited Saber Ali at Research Garage in Nuneaton to price the car up.  Settling on a Giulia Veloce 280 in Black, Brian was amazed at the saving of £7,000 just by being a member of the Alfa Romeo Owners Club!
“I was going to buy a Giulia anyway”, said Brian, “but I have to say that the Affinity Scheme really was the icing on the cake”.
Brian says that the process could not have been simpler.  He just registered online with his AROC membership number then received an approval code which the dealer applied for him and, as if by magic, the price dropped by £7,000!
Would Brian recommend membership to AROC?   “Definitely!”, he says.   “Club membership is well worth the subscription anyway – the Affinity scheme makes it even more worthwhile”.
Brian’s black Giulia can be seen in the pictures below, including one picture alongside our Club Chairman’s red Veloce which was registered by Research Garage the same day!
