Interesting to hear another indie say 60K. maybe a bit on the early side for the jtdm?
I had mine done at 72K, as suggested by my local indie. The Alfa bumph states 90K, but I think this is a tad on the longer side, asking for trouble!
Not sure if the age plays as much a part in the deteriation of the belt and the risk in it breaking. As your is a 4 year old car with low miles, maybe this would be ok?
But then its always a peace of mind issue. If you have had it done, you can relax about it.
I think the price is in the ball park of most other reasonable indies. Does this include changing the water pump as well? Know to be a suspect part, esp on a 2006 car. Something about plastic impalers that can sheer and cause belt failure. The newer part has metal ones, so all safe.....
Hope my ramblings help in some way.
