Drunk Alfaholics

Hello, my name is Mark and Im an Alfaholic.

The garage bills keep on climbing and increasing in frequency and yet I cant shake the addiction. Ive now got a full service to pay for on a 156 1.8 T Spark (2001) She's done 145,000 miles and Ive got a quote of 415 to change the cam belt and 450 to do the full service before VAT. Thats before they've looked at anything else . I would really appreciate advice on whether this is too expensive (cos it seems so to me) and if anyone can recommend somewhere local to Brighton who can keep her running without me running out of cash!

Cheers to all

Re: Alfaholics

Hello and welcome to AO - sounds expensive.

Try the 156 tech lounge for garage recommendations or post a question asking for local independant garages in the regional lounge - you will get some replies there.
