Big service and diffs

Looking to get the 'big'* service done on the V6.

Having looked around there are a fair few places that will do it (don't fancy the job myself, never had to do a cambelt change), any local OR preferred distance recommendations?

Most seem to be at the 600 mark (labour, VAT etc included).

Also, at the same time I would be entertaining the idea of having the Q2 fitted. Having never driven a car so equipped (except a very hot Abbott Racing SAAB 9000 with a trick LSD fitted), will it be worth the outlay?
My car just heading up to 80k miles and does have some useful life left in it, but I don't really drive it TOO hard on the sort of road where a trick-diff would be of benefit. Of course I could dress it up as a safety feature......

Cheers for any advice

*belts/tensioners/and water pump along with oil,water, filters, plugs etc.

Also popped this into General ALFA discussion so those without the joy of owning a 147, 156 or GT can lend their advice too.

...if wishes were fishes, we'd all cast nets...

Absobliminlutely. Q2 is the single best modification I have ever had done in a car. 100% improvement and the car is much better behaved when having special moments.
