Re: Extended Warrantee
I'm not a fan of extended warranties.
I only ever had one once and it cost £400 for a year. The stuff it covered was very small (less than the regular warranty) and I had to have the beast serviced every 5000 miles at an approved workshop (i.e. dealer).
The 5000 miles was generic wording in the warranty contract, not Alfa specific wording (i.e. 12000 mile service intervals).
So, I would have to have getting on 3-services instead of 1 and at main dealer prices, to cover a restrcted number of components.
I'd say if you change the cam-belt and tensioners at the 36month service and then keep the oil level topped up you'll have very little chance of an expensive failure. If you want, put the "warranty money" in your kiddie's bank account and only nick it back if you do happen to have a major blow-up.
