Dont Worry about pranging your 4C, just love these paragraphs from Fiat
Authorised Alfa Care 4C Service Centres:cool:

Qualified and trained personnel, specific diagnosis and repair tools, plus high levels of service. The 4C Service Network is born. It is a specialised service structure that will be present with Authorised 4C Service Centres throughout the EMEA area that can be contacted by dialling a dedicated freephone number: 00 800 2532 4200.



The freephone number is available for providing technical and service information and for activating the roadside assistance supplied by the Authorised Centres, as are the routine maintenance and repair operations. And it is precisely repairs on which the chief new services focus.

The 4C is a 'special' car that is the fruit of innovative technologies and materials that require a targeted and highly professional approach, especially on the carbon fibre monocoque, aluminium components and SMC body.



More specifically, a special Diagnostics Centre has been created for the monocoque in Turin, which supports the 4C Service Centres in diagnosis and repair work. The facility boasts the professional expertise of a team of 'flying doctors' that can reach the 4C to be repaired at every Service Centre of the EMEA area if necessary, who analyse any damage the carbon fibre structure has sustained using radiographic and resonance technologies. In the case of slight or medium damage, they are equipped to make repairs on site. If, on the other hand, the damage is serious, the flying doctors opt to replace the monocoque at the Service Centre to which the customer turned.



The Alfa Care 4C Service Centres are also equipped to replace and repair aluminium beams. In detail, a repair system has been created for the rear beam, which is more complex to replace because it also houses the engine mountings. Repair requires that the damaged sections be cut and replaced, and that the parts be sealed with special adhesives that reproduce the cold welding effect.



Service Centre technicians are also able to repair slight or medium damages of the SMC parts of the body by using special instrument

Ride it hard Perreby flying doctors on the way:) Kaliber you have your own flying doctors

I noticed this amusing description as well, the thought of some UK Alfa dealers cutting out damaged aluminium tubular sections makes me feel faint ...

I can imagine insurance companies having conniptions about the 'flying doctors', especially in Australia. I can also imaging the gorillas insurance companies use as their "preferred" repairers picking up a hammer and saying 'she'll be right'.
