I've just taken my 1999 to CM in East Kilbride. Bought her Thursday with very little Service history, invoices for bits and bobs and no recollection from previous owner of Cam belt change at 70,000, and shes run 88,000. when I said that the eyebrows went up! "your a lucky man!" Probably previous just got her oil changed. Booked her in with Chic to get that done first and a new variator because she had that diesel sound at start up, and a full check of the rest of the car.
There are things that need doing immediately, others that can wait till next service, and some corrosion that can wait till mot time, some underbody corrosion.I'm sure a main dealer would be saying needs doing now show me your credit card. I've booked baby in for Thursday probably for everythingat once to get it out the way as they are so reasonable, so knowledgeable on alfas and their fiendish ways, that I cant recommend them highly enough.
oh and plastic bushes rather than whole arms.
Big Thumbs up to CM
