Relax ...Cambelts been done ?
After having my 147 for a week I went to CM Garage in Eastkilbride and got my Cambelt and Variator done as it was givin it the deisel noise on startup so peice of mind all round. The guys at the garage also gave the car a " health check " so usual stuff tyres , discs , not urgent but overall car is in good nick for a 2001 plate. Antiroll bar bushes seem to be the expensive thing but can wait til Santa gives me a wage rise. 350 quid for the belt and variator which I think is fairly standard. Guys were great very informative and even gave me their 147 to pick up the kids in while they were doing the work. Cant recommend them enough very helpful and you know they know the Alfas inside out.
