Re: timing belt prices for ireland
I can quote you prices in italy which will be similar: just timing belt with all pulleys, 500euros; variator 175euros; I also got the water pump done, it only costs 50euros though they have to flush and refill cooling system. Prices are inclusive of labour. Make sure they replace all pulleys when doing the timing belt. You'll be impressed with the performance afterwards, especially with a new noiseless variator!!! I spent all up nearly a grand including other bits and pieces, so price you have been quoted is ok. But get it done by an Alfa specialist.
