gt cambelt change cheaper alternitive

hi just got a gt 2006 1.9 diesel from a woman driver only 73 on the clock
had a fan belt scream and shopping trolley dings but rest is in very good condition
had the car at my mac. seems the alfa dealer did not replace the aux belt tentioner but fitted a smaller belt so i had to replace all bearing and tetioner and new belt
after that we opened the cam covers to see if the 3 year service was done no it was not so started phoning for parts the gt 1.9 and 147 1.9 is not the same gt is a lot bigger so we phoned alfa i that was not a good phone call so my maccie started looking at other spares
the gt takes opel parts and alot cheaper
timing belt idler OPET - 007
timing belt idler OPET - 034
timing belt OPE199 FSD

a friends cousin works on fait assembly line the guy that marks the box as the engin comes off the assembly line and he has a golf, audi,opel, all the french cars R,P,C stickers and marks them according there manufacturer. even lancia and crystler have a new car out

thanks to my maccie and his unwillingness to fall for alfa dealer prices i saved a bundle
