hard work on the spider

The other week I drove the spider rare event as toh rarely lets me have the keys, I immediately noticed that the clutch was noisy and their was a background whirring. I chiseled the keys out of her hands and took the car to my garage for open bonnet surgery, it was due cam belt and balance shaft belt anyway so the added cost of clutch and alternator were just more alfa pain
The surprise for me was the cam belt a reputed specialist had done it 36k before but the timing was miles out, I thought it was me or belt stretch but no it was just basic incompetence the upshot is the engine has never been as smoooooooth and powerful and economical to boot. All three jobs took me 2 days so it wasnt to bad labour wise
