Hi there.

1: I do 10.000 miles between mine
2: Not really shure about this. This page: Alfa Romeo 159 Timing Belt / Cambelt Change Intervals | MyTimingBelt.com says 48 months. I would say 75.000 Miles or in that area
3: You need the keycard. You can order it through you local dealer. It takes 15-20 minutes to code. Total price around 3-350 (That was what mine costed)
4: That is odd. Should be the other way round. Maybe a faulty sensor. But other people may know more on this subject.
5: They are just rooms. If you had one with Bose stereo. There would be a subwoofer/amplifier to the left, and a CD changer in the right. They are good for wests, oil, airpressure guage etc.
6: Subframes rust, upper wishbones in front squaks
(Easy fix) bad wheel alignment eats tyres in front. (should be set to 0)
The 210 versions pulls from 1200. The 200 versions from 2.000 rpm. (change turbo, oil lines and gaskets. Then you have a 210) Oh. And you will get addicted to the pull
