You're right it could be something else, just my guess that's all.
I've only had the EML on once in 5.5 years and it was the chain.
I personally don't think it's such a big deal if it is, provided it's done at a realistic price of course.
Lots of garages have done them before on Vectras, not really a specialist job.
You get plenty of warning, and it seems to be very rare for them to let go altogether, at least in the Alfa 2.2, plenty of cases in Vauxhalls though...
