Thumbs Up Newbie just landed

Good evening one each

Well last week no thoughts of an Alfa
But kept walking past a spider for sale

Gave me thoughts of youth returning
Trouble is I need a wig to feel the wind in me hair
These days as me granddaughter tells me
Grandad your bald in the middle

Anyway long story short
Looking through history that came with it
Couldn't help noticing last belt change was 2007

Bit scared to drive it until that's attended to
Garage I've used before for the motor home(sold awhile ago)
Couldn't/ wouldn't do it owing to misplaced belt change kit
But recommended the company below

I've sent a message to Avanti Alfa specialist in Ipswich
Just waiting a reply

Think I'll need to be sat down for the estimate
I'm thinking 100 but I may be wrong

Oh and it's a red t spark 16 v 2.0 spider in fair order

Welcome to AO & good luck with the Spider

I don't think 100 will go very far on a belt change, check out the Tech Lounge for advice Alfa GTV & 916 Spider - Alfa Romeo Forum

You quite right just had a reply from
Alfa specialist 540 inc vat including a variator just to be sure .

Bearing in mind the last belt change was 2007 if the info received
From the previous owners is correct but at least I can be sure

And I know what happens when a belt goes
3500 for a new engine in the fiat camper
Just had the belt changed as well
Deep joy
