Hi, I have been a faithful spider owner for 5 years and I have fell in love with Alfas ever since. I plan to buy 2007/2008 2.2 JTS 159 (27000 miles) this week and would like to get some advice from my fellow alfisti..
What sort of service history should a well maintained 159 have? I do long commute on motorway and the last thing I want is mechanical issue.
I've learned that JTS has a chain belt instead of rubber.
What is the correct timing belt change interval?
I also read that front tyres may show some signs of uneven wear and that the gear change may become a bit 'notchy' over the years.
Can you think of any other important serviceable parts that should be changed after I buy the car? apart from the usual break pads, tyres, etc
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
