Maybe that is the reason for the short intervals.

But at least the cam chain problems don't happen.
Not at all. 9 from 10 alfas are normally sold in Mscw or St.Pbrg area.
Jams are the reason. I have 18-20kmh as an average speed over city.

We have been very happy with our 159 1750 TBi engine & gearbox with 40,000m on the clock. We have had the oil & filter changed yearly even though we do about 8 to 9 thousand miles a year as an average with the car.
We would never wait for the oil & filter to be changed at 21,000m as per the service book which also states yearly as required.
