Just bought a 98 GTV TS from a dealer in Birkdale near (not Alfa dealer) for my wife. Generally very good condition, low miles (43K), full service history, etc. Lots of other folk were interested so I agreed to buy without RAC check. Engine sounds very rough at low revs but brilliant from 2500-3000rpm. looking through the other posts here it sounds like it's the variometer.
Need to get it fixed, is it officially part of the cam belt system as the three month warranty I've got states that major mechanical components are covered but that cam belts are not.
To get it done (and the cambelts while their at it) how much would be a reasonable charge? Once I've got an idea I'm going to approach the dealer and ask if they'll split the cost and I'll get the cambelt done.
Also anyone know a good Alfa specialist in the Northwest (Wirral, Liverpool, N Wales)? I don't mind traveling or paying (but not over the odds) if they're good.
