Where to get MAF, gasket and sparks?

I need to get a couple of things for my 01 1.6TS 147.

Need to get a MAF, having a look on ebay and it seems the way to go. £33 with a years guarentee can be all that bad?

What i also need is a gasket for the exhasut/engine mainfold downpipe. There is loads of air escaping which im sure will be affecting performace. It looks like the bolts may need to be replaced aswel as they look like they may be difficult to get of. Anyone know if theres a kit i can buy and where? Would rather get it online.

Also where is the best value with regard to spark plug kits? And a timign belt kit incl. tensioners? Eb spares whom ive used before seem quite pricey...

Previous advice from others has been to avoid non-bosch MAFs at all costs. If there's a year's guarantee it might be worth a try, but check the small-print.

Other suppliers are Alfa Workshop, Alternative Autos, and... one who's name escape me... shop4parts or something

Dont buy cheap MAF's, waste of money in more than half of cases, and it can affect fuel consumption.

Go over to the forum at alfa156.net and use the Alternative Auto's sponsor link, for me anyway, they are the cheapest for all routine parts like these and ultra reliable - you order on the phone with them - real people!

They probably wont have the manifold gasket and studs though - youre probably better off down the dealer with your chassis number for that.
