Re: alfa warranty
The short answer is NO - Alfa deem it to be a consumable.
My own experience of having a belt go on our 147 at 51k and one month out of warranty (so I didn't get the chance to push them on it) would lead me to strongly advise you to get this done NOW. Whist you are about it get the variator done at the same time (another £100 or so). It cost me £1700 to get the engine repaired when the belt went. Ignore the official recommendation of 72k - 36k is now the sensible choice.
I had the belt on the GTV replaced by a local garage when I bought it at 46k - cost £450 all in.
Don't want to panic you but at 55k and, presumably, 3 years you are already living on borrowed time.
Fun these Alfas aren't they?
