156 JTD cambelt change - how much? any specialists in south west wales?

Hi guys,

Ive just bought an Alfa 156 JTD Veloce, ive been told the cambelt was changed at 90k which according to the service history was 2007, so i assume the belt was on its second change because the car did exceptionally high mileage in the first few years of life!

Its now done 127k and to be safe i would have thought changing it again wouldn't be harmful, my question being how much can i expect to pay, and are there any specialists in south west wales, or can my local fiat dealer do the job relatively cheaply?

Thanks in anticipation!

The average price around the West Midlands is about 250, but you've got to factor in the waterpump change(this is a must as in most cases the cause of a cambelt failure) and if no record of w/pump change a priority job. I'd say around the 300 less service costs.But to be honest unless you able to give your bella a full service,air filter,oil filter,oil change etc,etc you might as well add a full service cost also!
So all in around the 400 mark.
Would you rather drive around with what ifs? or pay the extra 100 any be happy? I KNOW WHICH OPTION I'd PREFER!
