I hav just got my first Alfa, 2.0TS GTV, loving it so far but still a bit nervous about the rumours and story i hear of bad things! Trying to get advise on a cam belt change at the moment as there doesnt seem to be any specialists near by and dont want it in the hands of a dogey mechanic when i could probably do the job myself. Hi anyway I will post lost of questions soon look out!

Re: Hi

Welcome to AO mate.
Like classicgal93 said look in the tech sector. I've got one of these little beaut's. If you paid good money and got service history for a good one they are not too bad. But still I think its like going out with a highly strung 'supermodel looking' bad girl. Its great to look at, when things are good they are great, and even though you spend all your time and money on her you know she's bad for you and she'll strip you of your cash and *****slap you by suprising you with another parts bill.
Air flow sensors (MAF sensor) are a common problem if your down on power, Cam belt change is now recomended at 36k now I think but check as I could be wrong. Hope I didnt scare you too much.
But hey, when you walk up to your car in that carpark and see just how nice it is compared to everything else next to it you just think, Im so glad I got it!
Nice one m8!
