GTV 3.0 Lusso

First post

This is my first post. I have yet to experience the delights or otherwise of owning an Alfa. I have made a bid on a GTV cup no. 123 but with 53k on the clock I feel the car should have the cambelt changed as part of the deal. It is not being bought privately.
Otherwise the car looks pretty good.
I did read some comments on the site about it being mistreated but it does have a full history but not with main dealers.
I am very happy to be here and would appreciate your comments.

Welcome Bob.

cam ain't due for change 'til 72,000miles which is about a year and a half away. So long as the rest of the service history looks kosher I wouldn't let it bother you too much.

Re: First post

Hi Paul. I wouldn't try and pressure the place thats selling the car to change the belt, as your trying to get them to do it at their own cost they might do it on the cheap.

Get a quote from your local independent Alfa specialist for a belt & tensioners change and factor this into what you're willing to pay..
