The V6 is a very good engine by any manufactuers standard. With correct servicing and oil top ups an engines life is technically limitless. People always get worried when engines get on a bit but you really shouldn't. What you should worry about is who did or in most cases didn't look after it before you. Look after it and replace the bits that fail and it will go on forever. My TS is a perfect example of this and we know how unreliable they are! Currently stands at 220,000 on original, block, crank,head,pistons and rods(just replace bearings when it was needed) etc so there is proof that any alfa engine if looked after will serve you well.
