About Us


The Fiat and Alfa Romeo Specialists are exactly that. We are an independent specialist garage that specialise in the service, repair and diagnostics of Fiats and Alfa Romeo vehicles. The garage was set up in March 2008 by founder Eddie Payne.

From July 2021 the business passed into the hands of Paul and Emma Bishop. Emma, rarely seen, is the book keeper as well as looking after their 2 young children. Paul, with a passion for Fiat, Abarth and Alfa Romeo cars will welcome you to the workshop and make sure we do our most to maintain and mend your motor cars. Working in the car trade for many years and a background of older car restoration he makes a valued addition to the business. With customer service at the core of his business ethics.

Due to the quantity of work and to keep a high level of customer’s standards, which is a high priority to us, it was necessary to employ highly qualified Fiat and Alfa Romeo technicians. Adam Read (a talented technician especially with the V6 Busso engine) who worked along side the founder has over 17 years of Fiat and Alfa Romeo experience and Gow Skinner newly joined has over 30 years of multi-brand mechanic experience. A lot of this gained on car marque’s that are under the newly formed Stellantis group.

With that in mind the garage is now serviced by two highly experienced Fiat and Alfa Romeo technicians. Tallying up over 50 years of experience between them, all from franchise dealer and commercial workshop backgrounds.

The Workshop


The workshop is also of a very high standard. With a clean and modern environment, you would have no doubt that your Fiat or Alfa Romeo is being looked after and cared for with the upmost respect.

The garage is equipped with a large range of specialised tools to be able to complete a wide number of complex tasks across the Fiat and Alfa Romeo range. Included in the specialist equipment is a state of the art diagnostic computer to help assist the team in finding any fault with vehicles.

The workshop also offers four relatively new heavy duty American style Ranger car lifts. Three of which are four ton and have the ability to hold any car or small commercial vehicle. The fourth lift is five ton and has the ability to cater for larger vehicles such as larger commercial vehicles. Long wheel base vans, and motor home vehicles also. So for all you camper owners, you have a service centre in the Bury St Edmunds area with very competitive prices.

We would also like to make it known that we do not just single out Fiat and Alfa Romeo vehicles. All other makes and models are equally as welcome
