Re: Cam Belt Change for GT - Confusion????
Actually, further to my posting I did speak to Alfa Romeo Australia and even though the UK still has the 5 year recommendation for V6s and diesels, in Australia they have changed it to 3 years (60K) regardless in keeping with most cambelt recommendations in other car marques.
I guess that even though in the UK it's 5 years for both the 3.2 V6 and the diesel it might be worth while to be overly cautious given that most of the other cars manufacturers are going for 3 years regardless. To quote Clint Eastwood ... "Are you feeling lucky - punk".
One interesting thing that the Alfa guy I spoke to said was that the new models, (or some of them at least), are going to timing chains. I've wondered why timing chains were made obsolete and presumed it was to do with noise and/or stretching.
Anyhow I'm going to change my belts at 3 years even though I've got f'all mileage on the car.
The Alfa guy is sending me an official copy of the recommendation in PDF format so if anyone wants a copy yell out.
