V6 Tappet / Cam Follower Noise

I have just bought a 155 V6 and with it came a tappet noise. I was advised that it may be the cam follower making that noise. Does anybody know of a Alfa Specialst near Heathrow ?

Thorobred Cars in Shepperton are fairly good. They're about 3 miles from J11 of the M25.

Welcome to the forum . We've been through this subject a few times on here!!
The V6, although a brilliant engine is normally quite "tappy" at tickover. I went through the same thoughts when I bought my V6 five months ago.
In the end, I took the car to my local Alfa speciast, who assurred me all was normal.
So unless its especially bad, don't worry too much.
Its probably worth just taking a while to sift through a few old posting on this forum.
(I'd direct you to them if I wasn't at work now!!) eek!
