I had taken the day off to get my car serviced - at an Alfa Dealer near me - the car was in for the 72000 mile service, and I asked the service desk person to make sure that the valve clearances are checked - as mine is the 8v JTD and the valve clearance are done on shims - I picked the car up and asked the service desk person and they said that they have been checked, later on I checked the paperwork and guess what, a big cross against them on the checklist!!! I rang them up today and to their credit they have asked me to bring the car back in on Saturday morning for them to be done, so do be aware other ALFA 1.9 JTD owners, that the clearances have been checked. I will report back on saturday. Also shop4parts saved me a small fortune on parts, and their customer service was great!
