Buying a 147 - HELP!!!
Hi All - I'm brand new to the site, and to Alfas.
I've been looking for a 147 2.0TS, and have found one - Hurrah!!
2001, 3 door 2.0TS Selespeed in silver with (only) 39K. This is for sale privately for £2,800. Full service history - but not all Alfa, as it belonged to a garage owner who did his own servicing. Full years MOT yadda, yadda, yadda.
My concern is, as always, the cam belt. There is no evidence in the service history that this has been changed. Is there any way of knowing just by examining the car? (Excuse my ignornace - I'm new to this!)
My intention would be to get this done ASAP after purchasing the car, but should I just walk away?
Any help/guidance would be appreciated as I don't want to end up with a "dog" (and a huge bill to go with it).
